News Brief

Close to 100 Jews from northern Ethiopia arrived in Israel on Tuesday as part of stepped-up efforts to bring over the more than 3,000 Jews living in the Kwara region. Israel was criticized during the past year by advocates for Ethiopian Jewry for failing to expedite the immigration of the Kwara Jews, who were left behind in the airlifts of Operation Solomon in 1991, which brought some 14,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel.
