A Tisha B'Av Community Conversation about Ethiopian Aliyah, Ethiopian-Israel Community and Racial Justice in Israel and America with Oshra Friedman.
Oshra Friedman currently serves as the Deputy Director-General, Authority for the Advancement of the Status of Women. Oshra arrived in Israel from Ethiopia with Operation Moses when she was seven years old. She received her B.A. in criminology and human resources from Bar Ilan University in 2002, earned an M.A. in immigration and social absorption from the Ruppin Academic College in 2007, and is currently pursuing a doctorate in education and leadership from Haifa University. Having been an education officer in the IDF, Oshar opted to join the team of the Rashi Foundation, where she spearheaded the development and implementation of the Katzir Scholarship Fund, of which she was, until recently, the northern regional coordinator and director of partnership development. This unique fund provides scholarships to economically weak populations of Israel's periphery and enables recipients to achieve academically, and improve their social mobility and financial independence.
