Did you know that there are over 125,000 Ethiopian Jews living, serving, and working in Israel? Do you want to learn more about the diverse population of Israel and how cultures intersect? If so, please join CAMERA’s Emet for Israel supported organization at Clark University, Clarkies for Israel (CFI) in an open dialogue with Zion Uness on Monday, February 22nd.

“Mr. Uness’ courageous story is one of hardship, but also one of triumph over adversity. His experiences as a refugee during the rescue airlift are demonstrative of Israel’s excellent commitment to human rights,” stated CAMERA Fellow and CFI Board Member Patrick Fox.

Mr. Uness arrived in Israel as a result of the mass-airlift event Operation Moses in 1984. He later served in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and got his degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Haifa. He will be speaking about his journey to Israel on foot in Sudan, his service in the military, and the life he lives today.

“I hope the event generates more interest within my campus to learn more about Israel,” added Shannon Herman, CFI’s President.

Please attend the event to learn about the Ethiopian Israeli Jewish community and feel free to ask any questions you may have. All are welcome. There will be FREE FOOD! Click here to sign up for the event via Facebook.

The event will be taking place in the Grace Conference Room in the University Center at Clark.

Hosted by Clarkies for Israel, an Emet for Israel supported group, and the Hillel Israel & Zionism Committee.

Co-Sponsored by CAMERA on Campus and the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA).
