Paying tribute to Ethiopian Jews who didn’t make it

Some 150 people attended a remembrance ceremony for Ethiopian Jews who died on their way to Israel at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem Wednesday.

For the fourth year, the Student Union of the university invited the public to hear the testimonies of those who survived the journey and lost loved ones in Sudan on the way.

The ceremony was attended by Qes Samai Elias, the CEO of the National Council of Ethiopian Jewish Priests in Israel; David Yaso, director of the Absorption of Ethiopian Jewry at the Immigrant Absorption Ministry; Amy Palmer, director-general of the Justice Ministry; and former Yesh Atid MK Shimon Solomon.
