Walk in their Shoes - Join a journey which will break barriers by providing increased access to top quality higher education for Israelies of Ethiopian origin.

Donate to Walk in Their Shoes

In February 2023, a diverse delegation from North America and Israel will come together to embark on a five-day journey to Ethiopia.

Travelling alongside Ethiopian Jewish educators, we will reconnect with the rich history of the community, connect to the historic walk and struggles of the 1980s and ‘90s to arrive in Israel, and learn of the situation of those still awaiting the opportunity to reunite with family in Israel and to fulfill their dream of a returning to Jerusalem.

With your help, the Hebrew University, in partnership with The Morris and Rosalind Goodman Family Foundation, will work to ensure that all Ethiopian Israelis who wish to study at and have been admitted to the Hebrew University, have the financial resources needed – ensuring a most positive and life-enriching educational experience at Israel’s leading university and Jerusalem’s center of academic excellence. The financial scholarships created through this campaign will make a significant difference and aid with tuition, living expenses, and personalized academic guidance.
