This is the first Rosh Hashanah service held in Debra Brehan Ethiopia in probably 500 years. It was attended by about 50 people. Michael Moges, who led the service, was trained over the past several months, by Conservative Rabbi Gershom Sizomu from the Abayudaya community in Uganda. Michael wants to become an ordained Rabbi. There is small synagogue in Kechene Ethiopia for the Beta Israel community, but not in Debra Brehan, the heart of this community.
