Ethiopian Olim Reunite With Family in Israel

Through Operation Zur Israel, thousands of Ethiopian Jews are making aliyah this year and reuniting with loved ones already in Israel. Many have waited decades, enduring hardships and struggling to hold on to hope, for the day they would get to go to Israel. Felegush and Navra Bewket Tebeje made aliyah with their three children, ages 28, 24 and 20, last month and are excited to reunite with their other three daughters who immigrated to Israel about 13 years ago and to meet their grandchildren who were born there. After living in a crowded apartment in Ethiopia and having difficulties finding work and earning a decent living, the entire family is full of joy and gratitude to live in the Holy Land. Operation Zur Israel is a program of The Jewish Agency for Israel, a Federation overseas partner. The Jewish Agency will continue to support the family with Hebrew language and acculturation classes as they acclimate to their new home while living in Avia Absorption Center in Be’er Sheva.
