The Fidel Association:
The arrival of the Beta Israel community is an important milestone in Israel’s history but the journey towards full integration into Israeli society is an ongoing challenge. Fidel has been meeting the challenge since 1997.
The word “fidel” (ፊደል) in Amharic means alpha-bet. Our belief is that education is the key to the success of the community. FIDEL’s vision is of a socially and economically integrated Ethiopian community, proud of its unique identity, sharing strengths with Israeli society and partaking in its leadership.
