Join us for the Boston premiere of the film “Nafkot” and a panel discussion about the little-known, extraordinary, and persistent Jewish communities remaining in Ethiopia as the First Temple Beta Israel Jewish Communities of Kechene and Semien Shewa.

Some segments of the historic Jewish communities in Ethiopia began emigrating to Israel in the 1980s via cross-desert treks and dramatic airlifts.

However, there remains a network of still largely hidden Jewish communities in Ethiopia practicing their traditions, surviving amidst intense local forms of anti-Jewishness, and struggling for recognition as legitimate Jewish communities.

Speakers will include Dr. Marla Brettschneider, editor of “The Hidden Jews of Ethiopia”; Dr. Malka Shabtay, film director; and Belayneh Tazebku, member of the Ethiopian community.

This event is part of the Morton E. Ruderman Memorial Lecture Series at Northeastern University, generously supported by the Ruderman Family Foundation.

RSVP by texting ETHIOPIA to 617-370-8587.
