Israel Welcomes Newest Group of Ethiopian-Jewish Immigrants

A group of 82 Ethiopian-Jews landed in Israel on Monday, the first of about 1,000 to be allowed to immigrate to the country as part of an October 2018 cabinet decision. The community currently numbers close to 9,000 and is concentrated mainly in Addis Ababa and Gondar, the imperial city at the center of the country’s traditional Jewish heartland.
