Joan Roth is an internationally acclaimed photographer whose passion lies in visually conveying the grandeur of ordinary lives. In several trips to Ethiopia, she amassed a body of work that brings to light the rich biblical culture and family life practiced by one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world. Offering a unique and rarely seen view of Africa--a Jewish and Black Africa, an Africa from ancient times--this book captures the last days of a 3,000-year-old community. A collection of over 200 images, from the everyday to the extraordinary, The Jews of Ethiopia provides a just-in-time snapshot of a community that was forever transformed when its inhabitants were airlifted to Israel in 1984.
Essays by Joan Roth, Ephrian Isaac and Steve Benzell.
