Despite final exams, about 30 students attended a talk by Zion Uness, hosted by our CAMERA Fellow Abir Gitlin at the University of Miami. Zion Uness spoke about how as a Jewish Ethiopian refugee who crossed Sudan on foot, he lived in a refugee camp, and then was airlifted to Israel. After serving in the infantry of the IDF, and attending the University of Haifa, he has tirelessly worked to improve Ethiopian–Israeli education and community life. He discussed his personal experiences, as well as Operation Moses and Ethiopian community in Israel today. Read more about the Ethiopian Jewish community here.
