This wonderful Youtube video is a children's story starring my friend, Rabbi Yaphet Almo, a rabbi, a scholar, a teacher and a tireless worker for Ethiopian Israelis. The story in Amharic with Hebrew subtitles tells of a young girl who comes home from school having suffered thoughtless racism who is told the story of a wise woman in an Ethiopian Jewish village who breaks down the barriers and suspicions between her village and the nearby Christian village. The video is produced by Abayenesh Productions, which was established in 2012 by Yafet's talented daughter Esti with a goal to bring Ethiopian Israelis stories to the screen.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1Iseb04t3o
