We want to invite American Jews to join in song with our Ethiopian siblings in the joy of celebrating the everlasting Jewish connection to Jerusalem. Since 2008, Sigd has been recognized as a national holiday in Israel.
Sigd - a unique Ethiopian Jewish holiday marking the deep connection between the Ethiopian Jewish community and Jerusalem - will be celebrated on Monday.
Sigd is a perfect holiday for American Jewish families interested in strengthening their connection to and understanding of the global diversity of Judaism.
Join us for a special Ethiopian Kabbalat Shabbat service with music, prayer and storytelling.
In Israel, the holiday officially began on Nov. 26 and continues through Nov. 27.
