Celebrate Ethiopian Jews, religious traditions, and cultural diversity!

You are invited to feast on Ethiopian food and celebrate the holiday of Sigd in true Ethiopian Fashion! Sigd (Meaning to Bow Down) is an Ethiopian Jewish tradition celebrated by the Beta Israel tribe in Ethiopia and Israel that commemorates the first time G-d reveals himself to Moses. Like Yom Kippur, Ethiopian Jews fast on this holiday and then end with a party like none other! Ethiopian Cuisine is a style of cookery that has combined the best principles of the Arab kitchen with the use of classic African ingredients, such as peanuts, bananas, rice, coconuts, spinach, corn and beans….etc. We are excited to offer a wide range of traditional dishes from the Beta Israel tribe and hope you will join us in this beautiful Break Fast festival!
There will be vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
