Nearly 60 American Friends listened with rapt attention to Prof. Galia Sabar, Chair of TAU's African Studies Department, as she presented an overview of the challenges for African Jews, migrant workers and asylum seekers in Israel. The evening also featured an exquisite reception at the modern offices of hosts K&L Gates LLP.

AFTAU friend Julie Tauber-McMahon welcomed guests to the reception, speaking about her family's Tauber Initiative at Tel Aviv University, which inspires Ethiopian youth to seek higher education and provides them with the tools for success.

Guests not only enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the changing face of Israel, but also the chance to mingle with each other and Prof. Sabar, whose presentation was eye-opening.
