Alert List

For the final alert in this series on the evacuation of the Ethiopian Jews to Israel we start with a podcast, Naftali Aklum, Advocate for Ethiopian Jewry.

Episode 36 of IsraelCast, featured guest Naftali Aklum. Naftali was born in Ethiopia in 1979 and, as a 6 month old baby, was among the first group of Jews to make Aliyah via Sudan. He now works as an advocate for Ethiopian-Israelis, striving to raise awareness about Jewish-Ethiopian history and to strengthen Ethiopian-Israeli identity. He strongly believes that through education and self-confidence the Ethiopian community throughout Israel will flourish. Naftali discusses Ethiopian Jewish history, culture, and the unique challenges faced by the Ethiopian Jewish community living in Israel.
Naftali also describes the upcoming Hollywood movie The Red Sea Diving Resort, which is based on the true story of his brother, Ferede, who championed Ethiopian migration to Jerusalem.

The Real Story of the Ethiopian Jews
The Real Story of the Ethiopian Jews was produced by Israel Social TV.
The story of the immigration of Ethiopian Jews is noted in Israeli consciousness through the heroic operation of the Mossad and the landing of the Hercules aircraft somewhere in the African desert, the saviours of the Ethiopian Jews. Through Yasu's story, we're exposed to the poor public awareness of the heroic story of Ethiopian Jews' immigration to Israel and its implications for the discriminatory policy of the government toward the Ethiopians.
