From Our Archives: Rav Ovadiah Yosef on the Status of Ethiopian Jews

Posted By Brody On October 8, 2013 @ 4:02 pm In From Our Archives,New Posts | No Comments

One of the more influential psakim delivered by Rav Ovadiah Yosef zt”l related to the halakhic status of Ethiopian Jews, as discussed in an article [1] in today’s Yediot Achronot.

See here [2] for Don Seeman’s article (Summer 1991) on this ruling in light of ethnographic research.

On the status of Ethiopian Jewry in general, see this article [3] by Rabbi J. David Bleich (Spring 1975).
