Sigd Holiday

Ethiopian Jewish community leaders or 'Kessim' hold umbrellas as they pray during a ceremony marking the 'Sigd' Ethiopian Jewish holiday at a hilltop in Jerusalem, Israel, on November 20, 2014. The holiday symbolizes the community's desire and aspirations for "return to Jerusalem". It is celebrated in the holy city with thousands of Ethiopians from all over Israel congregating to pray together at a promenade overlooking Jerusalem's Old City.
