For the Ethiopian Jews

Crowdbima01larger

This week was Sigd, the Ethiopian Jewish holiday reminiscent of Shavuot. For hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years, Ethiopian Jews gathered on this day to remember Jerusalem and the giving of the Torah. What follows are photos of this year's event from Arutz Sheva (more photos and other coverage here) and a poem written by Pulitzer Prize-nominated poet Charles Adés Fishman, from his book Chopin's Piano. (A special thank you to Charles Fishman and Time Being Books for graciously allowing me to reprint this.)
