Trip to Ethiopia
March 14, 2015 - March 26, 2015
(The Movement for Reform Judaism) (Community Events)

Trip to Ethiopia 14th – 26th March 2015

Meet the last Jews in Ethiopia!

See how they live and learn at first hand of their long and tragic history. From the kingdom of the Queen of Sheba, to the Jews who left in Operation Solomon; the Beta Israel have been sovereigns and slaves; commanded vast areas and suffered exile because of their faith.

The city of Gondar is home to some of the poorest Jews on the planet, yet they will welcome you into their synagogue and homes.  You will see their many work projects, play with their children and help in the Meketa after school club.

But that is not all. We will also see some of the greatest historical sights of sub-Sahara Africa along with areas of rare natural beauty.

The trip is led by Rabbi Sybil Sheridan and an Ethiopian guide.

Cost: £1900
inclusive of all flights, hotels, transport, entry tickets and most meals.

Contact Rabbi Sybil on meketafunding@gmail.com for more details
