NORTH Manchester Ethiopian Bar-Batmitzvah Twinning Programme participants enjoyed a final graduation event with their parents.

The UJIA-organised event provided a variety of Ethiopian experiences, including tasting Ethophian dishes prepared by UJIA shaliach Amir Levi.

The children were presented with certificates of participation accompanied by memory books, containing examples of the work they produced during the educational programme.

They made bookmarks showing their names in English, Hebrew and Amharic, the Ethiopian language

The evening was rounded off by an Ethiopian dance session, led by Brittany Ritell, UJIA Scottish Programmesí youth worker.

The children are continuing their fundraising efforts by selling greetings cards, designed by club members, to contribute towards the UJIA programme supporting children and families from the Ethiopian community in Kiryat Bialik, northern Israel.
