Friends of Ethiopians Jews (FEJ) was founded in 1998 by members of the American Association for Ethiopian Jews (AAEJ) and other veteran activists dedicated to assisting the Ethiopian Jewish community in Israel. Through supporting programs and projects led by Ethiopian-Israelis themselves, FEJ strives to empower the community, to help improve opportunities for Ethiopian-Israelis and to help create a just society in Israel overall.
FEJ supports organizations that are effective, well-managed grassroots groups, which are achieving measurable, successful results. Today, FEJ helps six Ethiopian-Israeli groups, and welcomes donations on behalf of these outstanding organizations:
Israeli Association for Ethiopian Jews (IAEJ)
Tebeka- Advocacy for Equality & Justice for Ethiopian Israelis
Tech Career - Computer Training for Ethiopian Israelis
Friends by Nature Community Empowerment
Olim Beyahad - Rising Up Together
