The Last Jews in Ethiopia – Rabbi Sybil Sheridan

Sunday, October 24

On Sunday, Rabbi Sybil Sheridan gave a presentation about the Ethiopian Jews and the work of Meketa. We found out more about this community, their lives and their dreams of one day settling in Israel.

If you missed the presentation you can view the recording here.

Surviving COVID has been only one challenge the Beta Israel in Gondar, Ethiopia face. Now there is war in Tigray, the neighbouring province and as a result a strong military presence in the area. Prices for food and essentials have shot up but life continues for this ancient Jewish community.

Meketa is a charity that supports this community through education and training. Meketa enable families to move out of the poverty trap and create for themselves a brighter future.
