The Jerusalem Dream

In the late 1970’s, after thousands of years of praying and longing for Jerusalem, the first Ethiopian Jews arrived in Israel.
“Was it worth it?” their children now ask, for the first time.
They are brave and direct and their words pierce through the heart. Words shifting between the great happiness of village life and the longing to see Jerusalem. Words Stirred by fear and loss while making their way in the desert only to be forced into the great despair of a refugee camp in Sudan.
