Please help me support the Jewish National Fund by making a contribution to my fundraiser for the "Yerus" project!! I am privileged to have been a friend of JNF-USA for many years and am excited to be a partner in our shared mission to help build the future of Israel.

Please share this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance the goal of the Jewish National Fund supporting the Yerus Project, which works to integrate the heritage of Ethiopian Jewry as an integral part of the Israeli and Jewish story in the world. I started this initiative in 2018, with the purpose to expose the culture and history of Ethiopian Jews to the general public, to change the image of the community, promote equality of opportunity and fight the phenomena of discrimination and racism.

I am the founder and manager of the Yerus project, with an extensive background as an educator, social entrepreneur, and social program leader. In addition, you can ask me how you can also get involved the more the better!

Together, we can make a difference!
