Ashager Araro is the woman breaking down barriers in Israel. Born in Ethiopia, Araro came to Israel as an infant on Operation Solomon, a covert military mission that airlifted Ethiopian Jews to Israel in 1991. She grew up with seven siblings and rose to the rank of Lieutenant in the IDF Paratroops. Following her military service and studies, Araro pursued a career in diplomacy and social advocacy, visiting countries around the world to engage audiences as a proud black, Jewish, Israeli woman. Araro is also the founder of Bettea, an interactive, Ethiopian Israeli Heritage Center for visitors to explore and appreciate the story of Ethiopian Jews in Israel.
