This year, the holiday of Sigd will take place on November 27th (beginning on the evening of November 26th). The Ethiopian community will gather for a ceremony celebrating the renewal of the covenant between God and the people of Israel.
This ancient ceremony was traditionally held on a high mountain facing Jerusalem, symbolizing the yearning of the Ethiopian Jewish community to make aliyah to the Holy City.
In Israel, the ceremony is held annually at Armon HaNetziv, directly overlooking the Old City and the Temple Mount.
