ABSTRACT
The article reports on racism and other challenges facing Ethiopian Jews in Israel. The challenges confronting the successful integration of Ethiopian Jews into Israeli society mirror those faced by immigrant communities around the world, particularly in the U.S. In the case of the so-called beta-Israel, the name for Ethiopian Jews, quite a few are of their own making. Ethiopian Jews are widely referred to as the Falasha or strangers, though it is considered a derogatory moniker by those who have been living in Israel for some time.
