What is the Yerusalem Forum?
The Yerusalem Forum is a coalition of nonprofit organizations that work together to breathe new life into the story of the Ethiopian-Jewish community in Israel and to find a new, positive, authentic and significant place for it in the broader Israeli-Zionist narrative.
The Yerusalem Forum was launched in January 2017 and aims to create a platform for a robust, diverse network of local leaders, who will work to combat alienation from the other and racism, creating a more tolerant, shared and unified society.
We focus on three main activities:
An annual event highlighting Ethiopian leaders and community heroes.
An "Identity Journey" to Ethiopia for senior officials in public, social, academic and communication/media organizations.
Promotion of educational and tourism sites in Israel that demonstrate the profound story of the Ethiopian community in Israel.
