The Bible Identifies Negroes As Hebrew Israelites Not West Africans

Ethiopian Jewry | Israel Phenomenology

This week, we look at one of Israel’s most distinctive communities – the Jews of Ethiopia. While the story of their rescue from Ethiopia has become a well-known tale of daring, bravery and sheer Israeli chutzpah, there’s far more to know about Ethiopian Jews than this event. We trace the origins of this group, unpack the different terms associated with the “Beta Israel” (as the community refers to itself), and discuss why there are many Ethiopians still waiting to come to Israel. We also dive into the whole megillah of who is a Jew, and touch on the difficult subject of racism in Israeli society, as we discuss the ongoing (and sometimes bumpy) integration of Ethiopian Jewry into Israeli society.

Hebrew song in Israel – ’Marry Tonight’ 

Hebrew song ’Marry tonight’ (written by Yaniv Ben Mashiach ) performed at an Ethiopian Jewish (Beta Israel) wedding in Israel by Israeli singer Hagit Yaso. The singer Hagit Yaso is nowdays a very famous singer in Israel. But this performance was recorded before she became famous, when she was just a local girl from Sderot.
