Descendants of the lost Israelite tribe of Dan, according to Jewish lore, Ethiopian Jews spent millennia isolated from the rest of the Jewish world. In most

who emphasized text study and prayer. Ethiopia's Jewish kessoch
continued the traditions of Biblical-era priests, sacrificing animals
and collecting the first fruits of the harvest.
