An essay comparing Judaism and Rastafarianism

Many people think that Rastafarianism and Judaism would have nothing in common. Although they do have many different aspects to them, there also are things that they have in common. One thing is that they both have ties to "Falashas." Falashas is another name that Jews are associated with. In the tongue of Ancient Ethiopia, Ge'ez, Falashas means "stranger" or "immigrant." The Rastas should also be considered under this definition because they immigrated from Africa to the Caribbean as slaves.
