We applaud the Israeli government for admitting 3,000 Ethiopian olim to Israel. Although there is an estimated 8,000 waiting to leave, this is a step in the right direction. Recent escalation of violence creates an even more of an urgent need to get the Ethiopian Jews home. Our Federation will continue to play an important role in their resettlement as it has done over the last three decades helping 92,000 Ethiopian olim to resettle in Israel.
