Final Aliyah flights from Ethiopia - last 450 olim have arrived in Israel

On Wednesday 28 August 2013 the Aliyah (immigration) from Ethiopia came to an end. Operation Dove's Wings concluded a 3-year effort led by the Jewish Agency, supported by Keren Hayesod, to bring the remnants of the Jewish community of Ethiopia to Israel. Christians for Israel actively supported this project for many years as part of our project Bring the Jews Home.

In total 90,000 immigrants were brought from Ethiopia to Israel. The first major operation was carried out in 1984, followed by another wave in 1992. The arrivals last Wednesday mark a close of Operation Dove's Wings. Many of the new comers were reunited with children or parents whom they had not seen for years.  

After centuries in exile, the Ethiopian Jews are home. Thank God for His faithfulness!

Then they will know that I am the Lord their God, for though I sent them into exile among the nations, I will gather them to their own land, not leaving any behind.

~Ezekiel 39:28
