A funny thing happened to me last week on my way back from Africa. I got stuck in Ethiopia and was forced to spend an unexpected Shabbat in the capital Addis Ababa. This mishap became an amazing opportunity to meet and bond with the remaining Jewish community there who are waiting for the ‘OK’ to come to Israel and reunite with their families and the Jewish people.
On today’s show I will be speaking with a young member of this community. Abera Endeshaw, a student of software engineering. He speaks fluent Hebrew and English and represents the younger generation in the African Union’s International Affairs.
Later in the show I will be speaking with Zimbabwe Bishop Scott Mwanza who visited the Shomron area in Israel with his wife Lilian. We also speak with American Indian Chief Joseph and Dr. Laralyn Riverwind, Indigenous First Nations activists who will tell us about their experiences in the Heartland of Israel and their support for Israel’s claim to this land.
