Over a 15-year period beginning in the mid-1970s, more than 40,000 Ethiopian Jews migrated from Africa and resettled in Israel. The return of the "Black Jews" to Israel is one of the most unique phenomena of modern day Black history for two reasons: first, the Ethiopian Jews are the only group of Africans practicing Judaism and secondly, they are the only group of Africans to immigrate to a predominantly white society for religious reasons. The Black Jews of Ethiopia examines the past of the Ethiopian Jews, or Beta Israelites, in order to understand their present life in Israel. A must for any library supporting African or Judaic studies.
