Fact 98: Ethiopian Immigration to Israel
I have just sent the second FactsOfIsrael.com newsletter. This time it includes the following fact:
Fact Number 98
On the 24th and 25th of May 1991, Operation Solomon airlifts 14,324 Ethiopian Jews to Israel aboard thirty-four El Al jets in just over thirty-six hours. Ethiopian Jews are black and Operation Solomon, which ended in 1997, brought an additional 25,811 Ethiopian Jews to Israel.
While I studied at the Technion, Israel's Institute of Technology, I made a few friends who originally came from Ethiopia in 1984. One of them, David, was in my class and graduated with a degree in Aeronautics and Space SciencePosted by David Melle at May 05, 2002 08:11 PM
