Kol Ami has formed an “Israel Connection” committee with the express purpose of bringing a series of programs focused on Israel-related topics of interest to our congregation.
For its inaugural program, we are lucky to have Kasa Bainesay-Harbor, Deputy Consul General at the Israeli Consulate in Miami.
Kasa will share the story of her family’s journey from Ethiopia to Israel and will also discuss the current state of the Ethiopian community in Israel.
The program will take place at the end of a shortened Shabbat service. After a short presentation, you will get a chance to ask Kasa your questions.

Mark your calendars and don’t miss this! Feel free to wine and dine during this session.
The next program in this series will focus on contemporary social justice issues in Israel. A representative of the New Israel Fund (www.nif.org) will speak about the organization’s social justice initiatives in Israel. For those unfamiliar with the NIF, its mission is to help Israel live up to its founders’ vision of a society that ensures complete equality to all its inhabitants and to advance democratic values. The speaker name and date will be soon announced.
