Longing for Zion: From a Dream to Reality - The integration of Ethiopian Jews in Israel

Pnina Agenyahu

Ethiopian Jews had longed to return to Zion for hundreds of years, and in the 1980s many had finally realized their dream. In this session, Pnina will familiarize participants with the Ethiopian culture, share a personal account of her journey from Ethiopia to Israel, and explore the challenges faced by the Jewish Ethiopian community in their attempt to integrate into Israeli society. Through her own story, she will also portray the considerable accomplishments achieved within less than two generations of immigration, assessing whether reality has surpassed their dream.
