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.
