Jewish Ethiopian Immigrants Arrive in Israel

The ninth and final flight to bring 2,000 Jewish Ethiopians to Israel landed at Ben-Gurion Airport Thursday. “Operation Rock of Israel” began last December in efforts to reunite Ethiopian Jews with family in Israel. Aliyah and Integration Minister Pnina Tamano-Shata organized the initiative. Sadly, upwards of 7,000 Ethiopian Jews who desire to immigrate to Israel remain in Ethiopia, and there is currently no organized plan for bringing them to Israel. Please pray that these new immigrants will quickly adjust to life in Israel, and learn Hebrew. Please also pray for abundant educational and employment opportunities!
