Ayinadis comes to Hamilton from Beit She’an, a small town in the northern part of the Jordan Valley where she has been very involved in the town’s Ethiopian community. After immigrating to Israel at age two with her entire family, she quickly learned the importance of staying part of the Ethiopian community in Israel. She is strong believer in public diplomacy and the relationship between Israel and Diaspora Jewry Ayinadis has had a very successful year connecting with McMaster and Guelph Jewish students on campus to Israel through her personal experiences. Ayinadis will speak on her experiences in Israel and in the Ethiopian Jewish community.Please join us for Ayinadis’ talk immediately following Shabbat services on Saturday, April 14, 2018.
