The Sigd holiday is celebrated by Ethiopian Jews on the 50th day following Yom Kippur. It is, just as Yom Kippur, an occasion to pray for forgiveness for sins committed in the past year.
This year, Sigd fell on 11 November of the Gregorian calendar and was celebrated by thousands of Ethiopian Jews throughout Israel by traveling to Jerusalem and praying at the Western wall and the promenade of the Armon Hanatziv neighbourhood.
Jewish communities have existed in Ethiopia for hundreds of years. In 1979-90, the majority of them moved to Israel. The Ethiopian community in Israel, called Beta Israel, numbers 120 000 people, of which a third was born in the country.
