The Israel Association for Ethiopian Jews (IAEJ)
was formed in 1993 in response to the growing crisis facing
Israel's Ethiopian immigrant community with regards to
education, housing and employment.
IAEJ is an Ethiopian-led advocacy and service organization
representing Israel's Ethiopian immigrant community.
Our goal is to assist in the full and rapid absorption
and integration of Ethiopian Jews into mainstream Israeli
society. Towards that end, IAEJ leads lobbying efforts
in government ministries and in the Knesset, produces
and distributes reports and position papers reflecting
the situation and needs of the Ethiopian community in
Israel; and works to foster partnerships in programming
between local and national Ethiopian Israeli organizations.
Through this multifaceted approach, we seek to establish
an informed and empowered Ethiopian citizenry.
