1st Ethiopian Storied Haggada Released
from The Jerusalem Post:
Ethiopian Jewry gets its first Haggada
The historic saga of Ethiopian Jewry, with its unique traditions and customs, will be incorporated into the mainstream Pessah story for the first time in a new Haggada written by Ethiopian-Jewish history expert Rabbi Menachem Waldman.
Set to reach bookstores this weekend, the 195-page Haggada features prayers and commentaries on the story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt translated from Amharic into Hebrew, as well as an account of how Ethiopia’s Beta Israel community escaped to Israel first via Sudan in Operation Moses in 1984-85 and later during Operation Solomon in 1991.
The book also includes extensive photographs and detailed explanations of Ethiopian Jewish traditions and customs connected with Pessah.
