Council for Returning Ethiopian Jews: A Small Step

The Public Committee for the Remainder of Ethiopian Jews welcomed on Sunday evening the government's decision to bring the Falash Mura Ethiopian community to Israel by early 2014.

“This is a small step in correcting an ongoing and incomprehensible wrong,” the Committee said in a statement, adding that it welcomes “the opening of an absorption center that will allow bringing in another 600 olim, but calls upon the government to fulfill its moral and Zionist and obligation immediately bring all those who are eligible for aliyah without imposing a disgraceful quota.”
