Outside Kiryat Gat there is a work village for Ethiopian immigrants from a farming background.
The Beta Israel Village Project
is a unique social-educational center on the outskirts of Kiryat Gat, which combines agricultural and educational activities with the intent of preserving Jewish-Ethiopian heritage and establishing it as a sustainable national asset. The Project is the brainchild of the Hineni Society - Network of mission driven Communities, which has been initiating and supporting Jewish-Ethiopian mission driven communities for more than a decade. www.beta-israel.org.il
