Film: “The Jewish Kingdom of Kush” – Beta Israel (Ethiopian Jewish) History – Documentary – Ibrahim Omer

Shalom everyone! The following is a documentary about the ancient Jewish Kingdom of Kush, presented by researcher Ibrahim Omer in 2013 at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey in Monterey, California. The research supports the theory that the Ethiopian Jewish (Beta Israel) community are direct descendants of the tribe of Dan, Israelites who once ruled the ancient kingdom of Kush, a large territory which encompassed Sudan and Ethiopia. Additional information on Omer’s research of Ancient Sudan may be found on his website

An ancient Jewish ( Beta Israel / Falasha ) kingdom flourished in the land of Kush ( Nubia / ancient Ethiopia ), in what is today Sudan. In the 9th/10th century the kingdom expanded into Axum. The kingdom was the homeland of historical figures Eldad Ha Dani and Queen Yodit. No archeological work has been done for this kingdom. Research shows that the kingdom should be located in eastern Sudan’s border area. No documentary work was done on this subject before.

This presentation of this video was held at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, California.
