Here’s the story of proud Jews who live in Ethiopia where they struggle to preserve their identity in an environment of hostility and persecution.

2000 years ago, around the time of the destruction of the second Jewish Temple, a group of Jews made their way to Ethiopia. Unfortunately, as the years passed, they experienced great hostility and persecution by their neighbors and were forced to go into hiding.

This video, part of a film by Irene Orleansky, tells the moving story of the Jews of the North Shewa region of Ethiopia. Their very existence is a miracle and their strength is inspiring.
