A child from the Hebrew Israelite community holds a placard that reads “We are all Hebrew,” at a rally outside of the District Court in Beersheba, Israel, ahead of a hearing on deportation orders for dozens of people from their community in July 2023. The community first made their way to Israel from the United States in the 1960s. While they do not consider themselves Jewish, they claim an ancestral connection to Israel. As the Israeli-Hamas war escalates, Black people in the region are facing the same effects of the violence and displacement.
