The entire Jewish community of Habban, in Hadhramaut Arabia, recently proceeded to Aden en route to Israel, it was revealed here today. The first Habbani Jews were recently flown here from Aden several days ago.
The Habbani Jews claim they are descendants of the tribe of Dan and that they settled in Habban prior to the destruction of the Second Temple. Located some 225 miles from Aden, the Jewish community of Habban in 1944 sent a delegation to Palestine to arrange for transfer of the Jewish population to the Holy Land.
