April 1, 2006, St. Gregory's Episcopal Church, An Evening of Ethiopian Jewish Culture, Bahalachin.
|Saturday, April 1, 8:30 pm, St. Gregory's Episcopal Church, 100 N.E. Mizner Blvd., Boca Raton, in our community center on the East Side of the Church, Harris Hall. (I-95 north or south to Palmetto Park Road, east to Mizner Boulevard (first light east of US 1), north one block to the church.)||The traditions and culture of Ethiopian Jews are 3000 years old, but the desire to return to Israel has never been lost. In modern times, that desire has been increased greatly by war and oppression. Now there are more than 100,000 Ethiopian Jews back in Israel struggling to integrate their agricultural society into modern Israel. We have the pleasure of a visit by Bahalachin, an organization centered in Tel Aviv and dedicated to preserving the culture and traditions of Ethiopian Jews settling in Israel. Join us for an evening of music, dance and storytelling.|
