Celebrate Black History Month by joining a virtual moderated conversation with the producer and others involved in the new feature documentary "Yerusalem" (based on the Israeli documentary series) which brings to life the story of a long, dramatic and tumultuous journey as the Jewish Ethiopian community finally find their way back to the heart of the Jewish people after centuries. "Yerusalem" is the story of an isolated Jewish tribe who kept its faith for thousands of years even though they lived in a hostile environment.

Free of charge, and the film will be available virtually for people to watch in February, dates to be confirmed.
Registration details available soon. Organized by the Zelikovitz Centre at Carleton University in conjunction with partners The Jewish Federation of Ottawa, the Embassy of Israel, CIJA, Temple Israel, Kehillat Beth Israel and Machzikei Hadas.
