HAFTR hears from Ethiopian sisters


Anat and Rachel, two sisters who walked for months to leave Ethiopia and go up to Yerushalayim, visited HAFTR Middle School last week.

Students learned about the Ethiopian Jewish holiday of Sagid, which takes place 50 days after Yom Kippur, marking the receiving of the Torah on Har Sinai. Anat and Rachel showed the children some of the hand embroidered and handwoven clothing and crafts from their native land.
