Jewish Federations to Give Financial Aid to Ethiopians Claiming Jewish Heritage

Several U.S. Jewish federations are giving financial aid to Ethiopians claiming Jewish ancestry. The $248,000 grant announced Monday comes in the wake of the death of Lloyd Rigler, a major Los Angeles-based funder of the North American Conference on Ethiopian Jewry. The federation money will go toward Rigler’s feeding program for children and pregnant and nursing women in Ethiopia.
