Michael Berenhaus' Mitzvah Project

P8160058-1

This project is now complete.

 

This August, I had the opportunity to go to Gondar, Ethiopia to visit the remaining Ethiopian Jews - 8700 of them
- and see their plight
first-hand.


Their conditions are alarming. They live in houses made of mud, have no refrigerator, no pantry, and no food. 


They are hungry and frequently ill.  The children are the most prone to maladies such as malaria since their immune systems are compromised due to malnourishment. 

 

Twelve year-olds look like they are eight. Average life expectancy is 47. 

 

NACOEJ is now winding down its operations in preparation for the takeover of the Jewish Agency for Israel. As such, this project is now ended, even though the programs continue. The school lunch that NACOEJ provides is usually the only food the children will eat that day.
