ChaiLights and Insights: The Daring Rescue of Ethiopian Jews with Yola Reitman

November 22, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Come participate with Jews from all around Houston in the Zoom talk: “The Daring Rescue of Ethiopian Jews” with Yola Reitman on Sunday morning, November 22, at 11am!

Yola Reitman is the former Massad agent depicted in the Netflix film, Red Sea Diving Resort. Recruited by the Mossad, Yola facilitated the rescue of thousands of Ethiopian Jews fleeing persecution by acting as the Director of a fake diving operation on the shores of the Red Sea with the real mission to save lives.

This presentation is part of Chai Lights and Insights, a virtual program that keeps our community connected to Israel when the events of the world are keeping us away. Together, the program will explore important subjects, emerging fields and keep us close to Israel from the comfort of our homes.

The series is sponsored by the Houston Jewish Community Foundation and the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston. HCRJ is one of 24 community partners for this presentation!
