An Ethiopian immigrant to Israel, who serves as the director of Tel Aviv University, is the first Ethiopian Jew appointed to Israel’s Council for Higher Education.

Pnina Gadai Agenyahu was appointed to the council this week by Israel’s Education Minister Gideon Saar.

Agenyahu, 31, began her Hillel career as a student at Hebrew University, initiating innovative programs and eventually became program director of Hillel in Jerusalem before being appointed as the first Ethiopian-born Hillel director in the world, at Tel Aviv University.

Agenyahu, who came to Israel at the age of 3, has traveled around the world as a spokesperson for Israel.
