Israeli Government Resumes Taking Ethiopian Jews Israeli Government

The Interior Ministry is pushing for the government to resume facilitating Ethiopian immigration, which ceased in 2013, according to a leaked draft proposal published in the Israeli media on Thursday.

"Upon completing these government decisions, it turns out that many families from the Ethiopian community were split up, some members are in Israel, while others remain in Ethiopia,” it added.
