East Bay International Jewish Film Festival from March 12-26, check out eastbayjewishfilm.org for ticket information. We are co-sponsoring With No Land:
Operation Solomon brought 15,000 Jews from Ethiopia to Israel in under 24 hours. Hailed as a military operation that few countries could have mastered, the contributions of Ethiopian Jewish activists have remained mostly unknown. Using firsthand testimonies and archival footage, this documentary reveals the clandestine and often dangerous activities of the Ethiopian Jews themselves.
Guest Speaker: Yonatan Eyov, an Israeli emissary (shaliach) serving at Stanford University, will share his own story of immigrating to Israel at the age of six from Ethiopia and the present situation facing the Beta Yisrael community.
