The Beit Tzipora Centers of the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity in Ashkelon and Kerit Malachi are educational facilities that focus on educating the Ethiopian-Jewish community and provide Ethiopian-Israeli young people the opportunity to fully participate in Israeli society. Both facilities are learning centers and aim to provide additional help the schooling system may not offer. The Echo Foundation has donated 1,540 books, 820 to elementary students in Ashkelon and 720 to middle school students in Kerit Malachi. The Echo Foundation’s goal is to promote literacy to encourage an international understanding and provide students with opportunities to fully immerse themselves in Israeli culture and society.
