A funny thing happened to me last week on my way back from Africa. I got stuck in Ethiopia and was force to spend an unexpected Shabbat the capital Addis Ababa. This mishap became an amazing opertunity to meet and bond with the remaining Jewish community there who are waiting for OK to come to Israel and reunite with their families and the Jewish people.

On today's show I will be speaking with a young member of this community. Abera Endeshaw is a student of software engineering, he speaks fluent Hebrew and English and represents the younger generation in the African Union's International Affairs.

With the rise of right wing political parties in various European and other countries, the Jewish community in Israel is challenged with debate on their past and current positions regarding strong support for Israel on one hand and in some cases a shady antisemitic past.

On today’s show David will be speaking about these issues and more with Jenny Aharon, political adviser at European Parliament.
