The Fellowship and Rabbi Eckstein helps distribute Hebrew Bibles to Ethiopian immigrants in time for Shavuot
Rabbi Eckstein attended a ceremony in the Jerusalem municipal center with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and religious leaders of the Ethiopian community. At this event, some of the 1,000 Fellowship-purchased Bibles, printed in both Hebrew and Amharic languages, were distributed just in time for Shavuot. The Fellowship is providing the Bibles printed in Amharic, the native Ethiopian language, for use in synagogues and Ethiopian spiritual centers across Israel. The Amharic edition also contains the Hebrew text, side-by-side, to help readers gain Hebrew-language skills.
