Nishmat recently celebrated the graduation of 20 young women from its academic advancement and leadership program. The students, who both strengthened their Ethiopian Jewish identity and gained academic tools and life skills at Nishmat, are now completing their college degrees. They are on the cusp of entering the workforce as doctors, lawyers, educators, nurses, social workers, computer programmers, and actresses. Academic Advancement Coordinator, Dr. Esti Bar El said at the graduation, “Each one of you is the fulfillment of your parents’ dreams. I know you will make a meaningful contribution to any place you choose to work. Set out on your way, my beloved students, as a beautiful journey is ahead of you and the keys are already in your hands. We’re with you all the way.
