 In celebration of Yom Yerushalayim, join us virtually to hear from Zehava Tesfay, Director of The Jewish Agency Shlichut Initiative to UJA Federation of New York as she discusses the longing for Jerusalem among Ethiopian Jews.

Zehava Tesfay was born and raised in southern Israel to a family that had made Aliyah from Ethiopia in 1980 by journeying through Sudan. Zehava’s connection to world Jewry began when she served as a Jewish Agency Summer Camp Shlichah for Ramah Camps, after which she became involved in The Jewish Agency’s admissions and training processes for hundreds of Shlichut candidates.
