Terefu and Her Children: An Ethiopian-Israeli Odyssey Created By Lowell Handler

When: Sat., Sept. 7, 5-8 p.m. 2019
In 1992 I found myself, a Jewish-American photojournalist with Tourette syndrome, twitching and waiting for a plane bound for Israel at New York’s Kennedy Airport. My final destination: Ethiopia. Months prior Israel instituted Operation Solomon airlifting tens of thousands of Ethiopian Jews seeking refuge from the Eritrean Army. 'Terefu and Her Children' is the documentation of one Ethiopian Jewish family’s struggle to flee civil war and establish themselves in their new homeland, Israel.
