A New Museum for Ethiopian Jews

A museum focusing on Ethiopian Jewish culture and heritage will be built in the Israeli city of Rehovot. Ha’aretz reported Wednesday that the museum, which will cost some $4.5 million, will include a model Ethiopian village and a memorial to Ethiopian Jews who died in Sudan on their way to Israel. “We view the conservation of the past as very important and believe the museum will attract young people and adults alike,” Rehovot Mayor Shuki Forer said.
