Since Israel was established, Jews have returned to their homeland from all corners of the earth. One of the most prolific stories of return is that of Ethiopian Jewry, a group of Jews that had been entirely separated from the rest of the Jewish people for over 2000 years. Join Chloé to learn about the fascinating history of the Ethiopian Jews, their immigration and integration into the modern State of Israel. Through the story of Ethiopian Jewry, we learn about the diversity within the state of Israel, the successes and challenges of integrating different groups of immigrants, and how to make a more equal and inclusive society for all.
