In November 2021, the Government of Israel approved the decision to bring an additional 3,000 Ethiopian olim to Israel in the next year, beginning a new round in the resettlement initiative known as Operation Zur Israel (Rock of Israel).
The Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), which has been at the ready for their arrival, is officially starting this next wave of aliyah. New Ethiopian immigrants will be welcomed at JAFI absorption centers and will receive a full range of services and programs in order to successfully integrate into Israeli society.
To support the special needs of this new Ethiopian aliyah to Israel, the Jewish Federations of North America is seeking to raise an additional $5 million.
