“Yerusalem” by Levi Zini (Promotional still)

This feature documentary skillfully weaves together stories from immigrants, rabbis, activists, Mossad personnel and other key decision-makers who risked their lives to bring Ethiopian Jews to Israel. Having endured a hostile Christian environment for centuries, the faithful Jewish Ethiopian community, known as “Beta Israel,” passed down their ancient Jewish traditions from generation to generation. Yet even after having already survived their tumultuous exodus from Ethiopia and making aliyah in Israel, the Beta Israel can’t shake their outsider status. “Yerusalem” tells the tales of these brave immigrants and their helpers, even as they continue the struggle to prove their Jewishness in order to earn a legitimate place in Israeli society.

Also available virtually April 29 to May 4.
