It signifies the reverence to as well as remembrance of the Covenant made when the Torah was given to Moses on Mount Sinai.
On this day, the Beta Israel community commemorates this covenant with a walk to the highest point on a nearby mountain, symbolizing Mt. Sinai. During the procession up the mountain, verses from the Book of Ezra and Nehemiah are read for it is a day of Fasting, Reverence and Reflections.
Afterwards, a feast is held as the fast is broken and the community celebrates the gift of life.
