First+snow+for+new+Ethiopian+immigrants+in+Israel

Hundreds of Ethiopian olim (immigrants) living in The Jewish Agency for Israel absorption centers in Safed experienced snow today for the first time. The children pictured headed outside to play in the snow and feel the natural marvel with their own hands at the start of the snow storm, which has blanketed the city. Three Jewish Agency absorption centers are located in Safed which house 2,000 immigrants from Ethiopia, who The Jewish Agency brought to Israel in recent months. The olim arrived as a part of Operation Dove’s Wings, which will bring the Ethiopian Aliyah to a close.
