Both Israel and Ethiopia are very proud of Miss Israel 2013! Yityish 'Titi' Aynaw, the first Ethiopian Israeli to win the title, is not only beautiful but possesses notable wisdom and self-confidence.
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.
Yityish Titi Aynaw, a 21-year old clothing saleswoman and former Israeli Army officer, was chosen Miss Israel 2013 on Wednesday night – and became the first Ethiopian-born Israeli to win the title.
