There was some lively singing and Ethiopian shoulder-shaking dancing going on this afternoon at the Jerusalem International Book Fair!
The traditional Ethiopian music came before and after talks by young Rabbi Sharon Shalom, author of From Sinai to Ethiopia, and Shira Shatu, a Mandel Fellow writing her thesis on the aliyah of Ethiopian Jews to Israel.
The event was to honor the 20th anniversary of the Israel Association for Ethiopian Jews.
Refreshments were compliments of the Canadian Embassy.
I love the International Book Fair, held every two years!
You never know what you are going to discover there.
(For ABC Wednesday, E is for Ethiopian Jews.)
