Chag HaSigd Resources from UJIA


There are no written sources about the origins of Ethiopian Jews and the historical time they came to Ethiopia. For the most part, history has been preserved orally and has been passed down from generation to generation. The journey of  Ethiopian Jews through Sudan is one of the historical, important, and special journeys of the Jewish people in general and of the Ethiopian community in particular. It is intertwined with longings for the Land of Zion, an aspiration to realize an old dream of emigrating to Jerusalem, to build and understand it and to unite with the Jewish people in our country.

Use these primary school resources to teach and explore the Ethiopian holiday of Sigd.

Included is a primary school aged resource pack and videos on the holiday of Sigd.
