Sigd with the National Library of Israel


How do you preserve tradition while also adapting to new realities? How do you navigate through both the tensions and opportunities that come with being an immigrant community? How can we understand more about Sigd and bring it to our learners?

‍These are some of the questions discussed in this webinar Sigd: Tradition and Transition in the Ethiopian-Israeli Community, which explores:

► the story of the Ethiopian Jewish community in Israel

► Sigd as a symbol of the tension between tradition and transition

► using NLI resources to facilitate inquiry, including a rare copy of the Ethiopian Orit (Torah)
