Meet Mekonen, who surmounted many challenges as an immigrant from Ethiopia and joined the elite IDF paratrooper brigade.
This is the inspiring story of an IDF recruit, Mekonen Abeba, who emigrated from Ethiopia to Israel and joined the elite IDF paratrooper brigade.
Mekonen immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia just 12 hours after losing his father in tragic circumstances. He overcame personal difficulties and is excelling in his unit.
His story is a stirring example of another Ethiopian Jew integrating into Israeli society.
