DM

On Monday, institutions across Israel will commemorate the victims who tried to make aliyah from Ethiopia, in an effort to highlight a side of Zionist history that doesn’t often get told. Some 4000 Zionist Ethiopians never made it from their native land to Israel. They perished in Sudan enroute to Israel and a new initiative is looking to tell their stories. On Monday, Jerusalem Day, institutions across Israel will memorialize and commemorate the victims who tried to fulfill the Jewish dream in their aliyah from Ethiopia, in an effort to highlight a side of Zionist history that doesn’t often get told.
