On September 22, 2013 the Malkat Shva Project opened an Ethiopian Corner at the annual Beit Lehem St. Festival during Hol HaMoed Succot. This is the first time that an Ethiopian exhibition was invited to participate in a major city festival, and everyone who joined us appreciated how much our corner added to the richness and excitement of the event.

In collaboration with the Chantal Caray Community Youth Center and Jerusalem's Absorption Office, we builting a Gogo Bet - a traditional Ethiopian hut - with the help of veteran volunteers from the community, and ran a workshop in traditional Ethiopian arts and crafts.

When the sun went down, our dance troupe performed a preview of the original new dance that they were to perform two days later at the President's Open House, to rave reactions from the crowd. Afterwards our dance instructor and choreographer Adena Beyegne continued the celebration with more dancing in the streets.

The Malkat Shva Project is not just on the map now in Jerusalem - we're all over it!
