W by does Passover bring
a secret smile to many
Ethiopian-Israeli women?
Because some believe that Moses had
an Ethiopian wife (Numbers 12:1).
Around their seder tables, these
women have stories of two great exodus-
es to the Promised Land — that of the
Israelites from Egypt and that of their
own families' escapes from Ethiopia.
Many American seder leaders weave
in discussions of modern Jewish plights
and persecutions, making the biblical
Exodus resonate more deeply, including
Israel's rescue of 22,000 Ethiopian Jews
over the last 21/2 decades.
You might want to include a tra-
ditional Ethiopian Jewish prayer at
your seder. The following comes from
the Foundation for Family Learning,
headed by Rabbi Barry Dov Lerner, on
the Web site www.jewishfreeware.org .

Do not separate me, 0 Lord, from the
Chosen.
From the joy, from the light, from the
splendor
Let me see, 0 Lord, the light of Israel,
And let me listen to the words of the

just
While they speak about the Law.
To teach fear of thee, 0 Lord, King
forever.
Thou art blessed, 0 Lord, be merciful
to me.

By day be Thou my shepherd and my
guardian by night.
When I walk be my guide, when I sit
be my guardian.
When I call Thee, keep Thou not
silent.
I love Thee, hate me not;
I have confidence in Thee, abandon
me not.

Also consider ordering Ethiopian
Jewish folk crafts from Israel for your
table or as a gift for your host. Adisia
(Amharic for "renew your tradition"),
a cooperative of 20 women embroider-
ers in Afula, Israel, produces hand-
embroidered matzah covers, table run-
ners, mezuzahs and more. For product
information and to order, email:
adisiasales@gmail.com. Proceeds give
the Adisia women income for their
families and pride in their tradition. ❑
