Tonight, a lecture and discussion on Ethiopian Jewry in Israel

Tonight, Israel on Campus at McGill will host a lecture and discussion about the Ethiopian Jewish community in Israel. Ethiopian-Israeli Yonatan Belete will provide insight on Ethiopian Jewry, his family’s involvement in the resettlement of Ethiopians in Israel, and the issues that continue to concern the community today. A one-hour lecture will be followed by a 30-minute q&a period.

Yonatan, a fourth year political science student at Queen’s University, currently serves as Vice President of Queen’s Israel on Campus. As an Ethiopian Israeli, he has developed a strong passion for the county’s past, present, and future, and he will be sharing his perspective tonight.

The talk and discussion will be held in the Madeleine Parent room, on the 2nd floor of the SSMU building on McTavish street, at 7:30 PM. All are welcome to attend.
