Nishmat Students Explore Their Heritage

Ma’ayan Aleph students, Class of 2019, are exploring their Ethiopian heritage and traditions in preparation for Nishmat’s annual Sigd celebration next month. At Beit Ambousa Cultural Center in Gedera, they heard stories of young Ethiopian Israelis who had rejected their Ethiopian heritage as youngsters, only to recapture it through Sigd and by embracing their family histories.
