Imparting the Story of the Ethiopian Aliyah to Future Generations
"How can anyone discover himself if he doesn't know his past?"
- Yayo Zaodo (Year of Aliyah, 1991)
Project Ti'ud is a documentation initiative that seeks to preserve and perpetuate the "Modern Exodus" stories of Ethiopian Jews who made Aliyah to Israel at the end of the 20th century. These testimonies are collected by the children and grandchildren of these brave men and women who overcame great obstacles, so that future generations can stand in the Land of Israel today. This program seeks to encourage Israeli society, world Jewry, and others to understand, internalize, and learn from the courage and bravery of Ethiopian Jews.
