Hadassah Greater Detroit "Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Hidden Jews of Ethiopia"
May 10, 2021 @ 11:00AM — 12:30PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Join us as Rabbi Josh Bennett of Temple Israel shares the amazing story of the Hidden Jews of Ethiopia
We will explore the history of the Ethiopian Jewish Community and discover the roots of an African Jewish presence in the ancient Aksumite Kingdom. Following a trail of clues and historical narratives, we will investigate the possibility that the Ark of the Covenant resides today in modern Ethiopia. All of this leads to the recent discovery of a "Jewishly Rooted" population in Addis Ababa and North Shewa. Join Rabbi Bennett as he shares stories, images, and videos from his recent trip to support "The Hidden Jews of Ethiopia."
