Ethiopian Jews: Our Overlooked Brethren
Oct 17 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Ethiopian Jews: Our Overlooked Brethren – Helping To Bring Those Remaining, Home to Zion

Join us to hear Shlomo Motta, a former shepherd who made aliyah, served in the IDF and became Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, share his personal account of his journey to Israel via Operation Moses. We will discuss the history of Ethiopian Jews and the current status of roughly 150 thousand Ethiopian Jews in Israel today, as well as the efforts to bring the remaining 12 thousand Jews stranded in Ethiopia home to Zion.

The event will include a program live from the Jewish compound in Gondar, which is the center of activity for approximately 10,000 Jews. The program will be led by Neguise Alemu, an Ethiopian Israeli who has spent the last 4 years away from his family in order to run the lifesaving programs. Negusie will describe the situation of the community which is currently afflicted by Covid, famine, and civil war, which recently was only 50 miles from Gondar.

Please register to receive the Zoom information for this event.

Tour the Tenderloin with Del Seymour
Oct 17 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Join Rabbi Bauer and your Emanu-El community for a unique tour of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, led by Del Seymour, the neighborhood’s unofficial Mayor.  Del Seymour will take you on a journey of discovery, revealing the true nature of a much-maligned, often avoided and almost always overlooked neighborhood and its community, which includes some of San Francisco’s most vulnerable residents. The tour plus Q&A will take 90 minutes, followed by an outdoor pizza dinner with Rabbi Bauer (exact location TBD) to discuss our experiences and how we can turn what we’ve learned into action benefitting the city’s unhoused population. This opportunity is being sponsored by the Tzedek Council. This event is limited to two people per household.

 

A veteran and compassionate neighbor, Del Seymour has been a member of the Tenderloin community for the past 30 years. He is a leader in the neighborhood, working closely with Glide Memorial Church, St. Antony’s, and Swords to Plowshares. He is also co-chair of San Francisco's Local Homeless Coordinating Board and has an appointed position with the St.Francis TL HIP Board. This whole endeavor began eight years ago when Del founded Tenderloin Walking Tours in order to “present the Tenderloin in a favorable setting.” In 2015, he founded Code Tenderloin to address the economic inequality he saw in his beloved neighborhood.
