Ethiopia's influence on Israeli history should be addressed in school curriculum, according to Tebeka, an Ethiopian social-rights group. "While we welcome the government's efforts to hold an official ceremony remembering these people and honouring our community, at the same time we are very disappointed that after 30 years of ongoing [immigration to Israel] from Ethiopia, very little attempt has been made to tell our story or include it as part of the formal educational curriculum," said Yitzhak Desse, the director of Tebeka.
