Hadas Yossef

Showcasing Israel’s Diversity

03/08/2011

One of the favorite mementoes that Hadas Yossef, an Israeli who spent a recent week on a pro-Israel speaking tour in the New York area, took back home, was a photograph of her and other delegation members with a New York cab driver.

The cabbie, a Muslim, is black.

Yossef, 30, a native of Ethiopia, is also black.

“Are you Israeli? There are black Jews in Israel?” the cab driver asked his passengers, who were wearing “Face of Israel” hooded sweatshirts.

The visiting Israeli delegation from the Israel at Heart organization received an open reception at local colleges.
