Some Terrific Pictures of Ethiopian Jews in Israel

Here's some great pictures of Ethiopian Jews in Israel at the Sigd Festival. On the 29th of the Hebrew month of Cheshvan, the Ethiopian community comes from all over Israel to Jerusalem. The 'Kessim' recite the prayers while the community prays overlooking the old city of Jerusalem. The desire to return has been realized.

While there are numerous problems within the Ethiopian community, it is a source of pride how they have become embedded in the heart of soul of Israel. Approximately 20,000 additional Ethiopian Jews are going to be brought to Israel in the near future.
