Ono Academic College’s CEO and founder, Ranan Hartman, was recently interviewed by Elliott Gotkine, Bloomberg Television’s former editor. Among other topics, they discussed the importance of the many Ethiopian Israelis who study at Ono. 

Ranan Hartman posed the question: How do we ensure that Ethiopian Jews studying at Ono become role models in the community?  He answered, “We want to make sure that every kid in the Ethiopian community that goes to school and sees an Ono graduate working in a leading law or accounting firm, will say, ‘This is why I have to excel in school.’  There is a clear role model from my community.  I am an Israeli and I am equal and I am proud.”
