Ethiopian Jewry has a long history, with traditions tracing Jewish arrival in Ethiopia to Biblical times. Yet it is only in the past decades that the greater Jewish community has been exposed to their customs and traditions. Possibly their most notable is the Sigd festival, celebrated fifty days after Yom Kippur. The festival is not like that of any other diaspora community but references and is based on events in the Bible.
