The safety of our community is our highest priority. In light of the evolving situation with the coronavirus and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to postpone this event.

For more information, email Sarah Rosenthal.



Join us to learn about the Ethiopian community in Israel and enjoy a delicious vegan Ethiopian dinner at Tsion Cafe in Harlem, for our 20s and 30s community. We will engage in a discussion about race in the context of the Ethiopian community in Israel with Bizu Riki Mullu, and we will also hear Abere Endeshaw’s fascinating story.

Cost: $20 (members)/ $30 non-members

A vegan dinner will be included (not certified kosher). Drinks and desserts will be available for an additional cost on site.

We are proud to be part of this year’s Synagogue Vegan Challenge, joining four other synagogues across the United States in taking the pledge to engage our communities in plant-based education, programming, and food. We are excited to explore how focusing on plant-based diets can have a positive impact on ourselves and the world around us.


Bizu Riki Mullu is a Good Will Ambassador, an artist, an Israeli social entrepreneur, and an Ethiopian Jew. As a representative and community activist for Ethiopian-Israeli Jews living in North America, Bizu Riki has a passion for communicating the rich culture and heritage of Ethiopian Jewry.

Abere Endeshaw is a young man from the Ethiopian Jewish community in Addis Ababa. He is the founder of the Young Ethiopian Jewish Leadership Team, which is a member of the world union Jewish students and was created to support the continuation of the Ethiopian Jews making Aliyah. Abere is a strong advocate for the Ethiopian Jewish community and is currently studying computer science at Yeshiva University.
