Like a Statue

"Nearly all of the Ethiopian Beit Israel (House of Israel) community, comprising more than 119,300 people, reside in Israel. The Israeli Government has mounted two major rescue operations, Operation Moses (1984) and Operation Solomon (1991), for their migration when civil war and famine threatened populations within Ethiopia. Today, 38,500 members of the community are native born Israelis". Taken by Flavio
