"If we unite, if the Ameri-
can Jewish commmunity is
together on the issue and
supportive of Israel, and if
the political conditions in
the Horn of Africa remain
as they have, then I'm op-
timistic in five-seven years
all Ethiopian Jews can be
rescued."
Barry Weise, director of
the Ethiopian Jewry Desk
of the National Jewish
Community Relations •
Advisory Council, made
this prediction this week
during a visit to Detroit
sponsored by the Jewish
Community Council.
Weise is on a 15-city tour
during which he hopes to
educate American Jewish
communities about the
plight of Ethiopian Jews
and about their history, cul-
ture and religious tradi-
tions.
Weise estimated that
there are about 20,000
Ethiopian Jews oppressed
and living under poverty
conditions in their native
land. Weise said that in the
mid-1970s about 200 Ethio-
pian Jews were rescued and
taken to Israel. Today, the
Ethiopian Jewish refugees
in Israel number 6,000.
Comparing the plight of
Ethiopian Jews with that of
their Soviet counterparts,
Weise said "this is one
bright spot on the globe for
Jews" adding that while
fewer Soviet Jews are leav-
ing Russia, more Ethiopian
Jews are being rescued.
Asked what American
Jews can do for the Ethio-
pian Jews, Weise recom-
mended that American
Jews petition their Con-
gressmen, Senators and
persons he called influen-
tial members of Congress
for famine relief •for Africa
and especially for Ethiopia.
Secondly, he suggested that
U.S. Jews go to Ethiopia to
visit their co-religionists.
"The purpose of these vis-
its is to give the Ethiopian
Jews hope that they're not
forgotten," he said.
"Tourists are our only
hope. It lets the (Ethiopian)
government know we're
very concerned." He also
recommended that Ameri-
can Jewish tourists who go
to Israel visit the Ethiopian
Jews who are in absorption
centers.
Israel has special absorp-
tion programs for the
Ethiopian Jews, aimed
mainly at bringing them
into the 20th Century.
"They're technologically
primitive," he said, adding
that in Ethiopia they have,
no electricity, appliances or
other modern conveniences,
but "socially, they're not
primitive."
Weise said that in Israel,

Weise, who had worked
for the World ORT Union in
Ethiopia in 1977, said the
Ethiopian Jews have a spe-

cial interest in coming to Is-
rael. "They want to come to
Israel because they believe
in messianic Judaism.
They'll be successful in Is-
rael because they want to be
there.”
