Senior Keystone Project: Experience of the Ethiopian Community in Israel- Pen Pal Project

Keystone Presentation Date: Tues., May 30, 2:05-3:20 pm
For my Keystone, I explored the experience of the Ethiopian community in Israel.  I worked on creating, coordinating, and participating in a pen pal project between JCHS students and Ethiopian-Israeli students at a majority Ethiopian Israeli school in Kiryat Bialik called ORT Dafna. The goal of the pen pal program and my separate research on the Ethiopian community in Israel was to learn about the experience of Ethiopian Israelis through their own voices.
