Sons of murdered Yemeni Jew make aliyah


JERUSALEM (JTA) — The sons of a Jewish man killed last year in Yemen have left the country for Israel, a Yemen news agency reported.

The sons of Moshe Yaish al-Nahari left Yemen on Tuesday, according to Yemen News, quoting the murdered man’s brother, who serves as the chief rabbi of the district of Ridah. Naharis daughters made aliyah in December. His parents, wife, four brothers and a sister remain in Yemen.

Nahari was gunned down in December by a man who said that Yemen Jews should convert or be killed.

Harassment and threats against Jews in Yemen have increased, according to the report. About 400 Jews remain in the country.
