Come join (RE)Connection members as we enjoy an early Sunday evening dinner and discussion on March 5th at Tsion Café, 763 Nicholas Avenue, Sugar Hill-Hamilton Heights, Manhattan.   

As we tear off strips of injera rolls, we will learn about the Ethiopian and Israeli culinary influences of Tsion’s chef – Beejhy Barhany. Beejhy was born in northern Ethiopia to a small community of Ethiopian Jews known as Beta Israel. She fled Ethiopia with her family when she was four, finally arriving in Israel after a three-year odyssey with stops in Kenya and France.

Please RSVP by sending your check for $35.00 per person (made out to Ellen Blake) to Ellen Blake, 45 Lenox Terrace, West Orange 07052 (or to Ellen by Venmo) no later than Saturday, February 25th.  Only paid reservations received by that date can be honored as the restaurant has a limit of 35 people and has asked us for a firm number one week in advance.  Please contact Ellen at or Laurie Landau with any questions.

For those of you who would like to do something on your own beforehand, we suggest visiting Hamilton’s Grange House Memorial or walking through the architecturally beautiful campus of City College.  Both are within a ten-minute walk of the restaurant.
