Travel to Gedera and Get to Know Truly Remarkable Leaders in the Ethiopian Israeli Community
The older generation of Ethiopian Olim to Israel had a very difficult time integrating into Israeli society for a number of reasons. While many different Jewish organizations in addition to the Israeli government have tried to alleviate the difficulty, often times the help was from outside of the community.
10 years ago, a committed group of young Ethiopians, who grew up in Israel, decided to move back into the struggling neighborhoods and create change from within.
