Ethiopean Jewish Heritage Week

March 14 - 22

In this week-long celebration of Ethiopian Jewish culture and history, we will first enjoy a virtual tour of "Battae," the new Ethiopian Jewish cultural center in Tel Aviv. Then, there will be streaming of the award-winning documentary The Passengers. Author Raffi Berg will examine the secret behind the Mossad operation to bring Ethiopian Jews to Israel in the early 1980s as revealed in his book Red Sea Spies. We'll conclude the week with the audience favorite film Live and Become.

We will be frequently updating our list of "2020-2021 EBIJFF Supporters" whose generosity enables us to bring you the festival and all the related programs.

THANK YOU!
