News from Israel: A New Round of Ethiopian Aliyah

Jan 6, 2022

Just 40 days ago, the Israeli government voted to admit an additional 3,000 Ethiopian olim to Israel, beginning a new and important round in the historic ingathering of the Jewish people to the Jewish state. Now, The Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) is set to welcome those from Operation Zur Israel.

The annual core funds Jewish Federations raise each year have enabled JAFI to support Ethiopian olim throughout the immigration process from Ethiopia and their resettlement and integration in Israel. To support the special needs of this new Ethiopian aliyah to Israel, Jewish Federations will seek to raise an additional $5 million.
