Please REGISTER in advance for this webinar at http://bit.ly/CelebratingSigd.  Join the Atlanta Israel Coalition, Herut North America, and our promotional partners as we welcome our featured guest, Naftali Aklum who will enlighten us about Sigd (Hebrew: סיגד‎), an Ethiopian Jewish holiday celebrated on the 29th of Cheshvan, exactly 50 days after Yom Kippur. Since 2008, it has been recognized as a state holiday for all Israelis. In Israel today, it is celebrated for an entire month leading up to the 29th of Cheshvan, and it is an opportunity to raise Ethiopian Jewish visibility and educate Israeli Jews about Beta Israel customs.
