Ethiopians struggle in Israel

Discrimination prevents some Jewish converts from succeeding in Israel.

Ybase Chekol, an Ethiopian Christian man, says his ancestors were among a group of Jews known as the Falash Mura who were forced to convert to Christianity more than 100 years ago.

Now, he and his family have moved to Israel, where Israeli law allows the Falash Mura to become citizens – if they embrace Judaism.

But as Al Jazeera’s Nicole Johnston reports from Jerusalem, discrimination makes it hard for many of these immigrants to succeed in Israeli society.
