Living Room Learning: Israel in Africa
January 26, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Following the December arrival of hundreds of Ethiopian immigrants to Israel, what is the status of the thousands of Ethiopians waiting to make aliya? How does Israel help combat locust swarms and wildfires in Ethiopia? What makes Senegal the Start-up Nation of Africa and how has the Jewish state supported its innovation ecosystem?
JCRC Executive Director discussed these questions with two veteran Israeli diplomats and community members:
–Or Daniely, Deputy Ambassador at Israel’s Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
–Daniel Aschheim, former Deputy Ambassador in Dakar, Senegal; currently serving as Consul for Public Diplomacy at Israel’s Consulate to the Midwest in Chicago
