Story of a Journey – The Etheopian Israeli Story

Israeli Ethiopians face persistent prejudice and discrimination due to widespread ignorance regarding their 2,500-year-old Jewish identity and culture. Countering this, Story of a Journey builds understanding via direct and open discussion between Israeli Ethiopians and other Israelis. It invites Israeli Ethiopians to share the Ethiopian Jewish story and their own personal journey with other Israelis in an informal setting. While this program receives funding from both the Ministry of Education and the Baron de Hirsch Foundation, its success has fueled increased demand, for which we seek funding.

Supporting the South

The IACC calls upon its partners and friends to help us appropriately prepare for any future conflict that arises as a result of the firing of deadly rockets from Gaza into Israel’s populated areas in the south by donating funds that will enable us to purchase the following vital items:

  • $48,000 to provide 80 shelter activity kits. These kits will include dolls and puppets that can be played with by the children, but also used by social workers and psychologist for role play in dealing with issues of trauma.  The kits will also provide games and art supplies to keep the children engaged in positive activities while in the shelters.
  • $8,000 to purchase 20 portable speaker systems with microphones.
  • $23,000 for 100 protective life vests for volunteers who must spend time out in the open.

With your financial support now, we can make sure that the communities affected by the ongoing conflict with Hamas and Islamic Jihad,  do not have to wait until the conflict is almost over before receiving the vital equipment and important supplies they need!

Help us be prepared for any future conflict!
