Aliyah from Ethiopia is in the final stages. Operation Dove's Wings aims to bring the remainder of the Falash Mura (Ethiopians whose ancestors were forced to convert from Judaism to Christianity) to Israel by March 2014. Some of these people have been waiting in a refugee camp in the Gondar province of Ethiopia for up to 10 years.
For many of the youngsters in Israeli absorption centers, this Purim, the celebration of redemption from total annihilation, will be their first. You can help Israel Today make this holiday a festive one for them.
Operation Dove's Wings represents the end of Jewish Aliyah from Ethiopia, the last members of an oppressed community. Israel is a beacon unto the world and all Jews can find a home here, but many struggle to integrate into Israeli society.
