The University of La Verne welcomed former Israel Ambassador to Ethiopia Asher Naim last week.

Hosted by the International Studies Institute, Naim delivered a powerful lecture about Jews in Ethiopia.

“This is one of those days where we have the opportunity to welcome an ambassador to campus,” University President Stephen Morgan said.

Naim’s presentation began with an in-depth description of the history of Jews in Ethiopia.

He spoke of Ethiopia’s integration of both the Jewish and Christian faith, and how the Ethiopian Jews faced isolation.

“What kept them together was their faith that God promised to fly them under the wings of the eagle from Ethiopia to Jerusalem,” Naim said.
