      “We’re Home!” Jewish Federation Of South Palm Beach

      County Leader Welcomes Ethiopian Olim To Israel

         Disembarking from a momentous flight, dozens of
      Ethiopians arrived in Israel, waving Israeli flags, hugging
      family and friends, and taking selfies.  Their smiles
      beamed pure bliss -- they were home.
         The June 1 flight was chartered by The Jewish Agency
      for Israel, a long-standing partner agency of the Jewish
      Federation of South Palm Beach County, in collaboration
      with Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah and Integration, as part
      of the continuation of Operation Zur Israel.
         In the next few months, 3,000 Ethiopian  olim
      (immigrants) will arrive in Israel to be reunited with
      families after many years apart. Local lay leader Shayna
      Bloom from the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach
      County, joined dozens of other community leaders
      from Jewish Federations of North America, as part of a
      welcoming delegation on the flight.
