Meet Dr. Maro Gete

In 1991, nine-year-old Maro Gete, his parents and nine brothers and sisters immigrated to Israel from a small village in Ethiopia. Maro had never attended school and could not read or write. At the age of 14, he began living and studying at Boys Town Jerusalem – six years later he graduated at the top of his class! During his IDF service, Maro became an officer who bravely led his troops in the Lebanon War. Today he is a well-respected physician at Shaarei Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

Recently, Dr. Maro Gete returned to Boys Town Jerusalem to offer words of encouragement to Ethiopian students in the school’s College of Applied Engineering.

“I owe Boys Town Jerusalem a great deal,” the doctor declared. “The six years that I spent here were a life-changing experience for me.”
