On Chag HaSigd, 29th Heshvan (this year November 18) Ethiopian Jews mark the covenant between God and the Jewish people, as well as their traditional longing for Jerusalem when they lived in Ethiopia.
For the 140,000 Ethiopian immigrants and their families who have made their way to Israel over the past few decades, the integration into this Promised Land continues to be a complex process.
The Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute's research has raised national awareness of this complexity—what has worked and what can be improved in promoting the inclusion and advancement of Ethiopians in Israeli society.
To mark Chag HaSigd, we are pleased to share with you a link to some of MJB's most important studies
of the Ethiopian-Israeli community.
