    The Ethiopian Jews referred to themselves as the Beta Israel (or the House of Israel), a term that is used throughout the rest of this article to label the community. The Beta Israel lived in villages in close proximity with the Christian and Muslim populations (Salamon 17).   Jews have lived in Ethiopia for over years. According to Ethiopian tradition, one-half of the population was Jewish before Christianity was proclaimed the official religion in the 4th century. The Jews maintained their independence for over years in spite of continuous massacres, religious persecution, enslavement, and forced conversions.

    Throughout the generations, Ethiopian Jews have longed to return to Jerusalem. Each year, fifty days after Yom Kippur, the Jewish community in Ethiopia celebrates the festival of “Sigd”, which means “worship”.They climb a mountain and celebrate the giving of the Torah to Moses at Sinai, and also the rediscovery of the Torah in the times of Ezra and the revival after the Babylonian exile. The Evolution of the Ethiopian Jews is the most thorough scholarly study of Beta Israel history within Ethiopia yet written. It traces the development of the Ethiopian Jews from their controversial origins to the beginning of the twentieth century/5.

    Many historians are convinced that Ethiopian Jews are medieval converts from Christianity. But mounting genetic evidence, and new scholarly research, suggests the Jewish origins of the Beta Israel. The Koren Ethiopian Haggada. Journey to Freedom. Edited by Rabbi Menachem Waldman. Koren Publishers, , pages. ISBN This is an interesting book that introduces readers to the history of Ethiopian Jews, the brutal treatment they endured for centuries, their culture, and the remarkable fact that they maintained the Jewish religion as mandated by the Torah before it was.
