About the upcoming film
Yerusalem: The Incredible Story of Ethiopian Jewry
“Yerusalem,” a feature documentary, brings to life the story of a long, dramatic and tumultuous journey as the Jewish Ethiopian community, also known as “Beta-Israel,” finally find their way back to the heart of the Jewish people after centuries – Jerusalem. “Yerusalem” is the story of an isolated Jewish tribe who kept its faith for thousands of years even though they lived in a hostile Christian environment. This is the story of ancient Jewish traditions, of heroic actions and daring covert operations. But mainly, this is the story of a powerful religious yearning that has been passed down from father to son for countless generations.
