FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7,

1988

erusalem — In the
course of Operation
Moses — the late 1984
rescue mission that brought
thousands of Ethiopian Jews
to Israel — many families
were separated and about
13,000 Jews were left behind.
Many of them are living in
precarious conditions, and
their relatives in Israel are
concerned for their safety.
Ethiopian immigrant or-
ganizations have become in-
creasingly frustrated that
there has been no campaign
to mobilize world public
opinion and western govern-
ments on behalf of these Jews.

j

During the past year, the
three main Ethiopian im-
migrant associations — the
Beta Israel, the Association of
Ethiopian Immigrants and
the Ethiopian Students Asso-
ciation — have joined with the
World Union of Jewish
Students (WUJS) to launch a
mass campaign asserting the
- right of Ethiopian Jews to be
reunited with their families
in Israel.
The WUJS and the Ethio-
pian immigrant groups plan
to circulate a petition in
Israel and around the world
calling on the Ethiopian
government to allow Ethio-
pian Jews to exercise their
right to join family members
in other countries who have
been "separated by migra-

petition to Ethiopian em-
bassies and raise the issue at
the United Nations.

Jewish organizations and
the Israeli government have
been reluctant to launch or
support a worldwide cam-
paign for Ethiopian Jews.
Israel's Foreign Ministry has
preferred to focus its efforts on
reestablishing diplomatic
relations with Ethiopia,
which were severed in 1973.
Some Jewish groups in the
United States also have been
reluctant to lend support.
When the National Jewish
Community Relations Ad-

"This is the
historic moment to
mobilize western
public opinion
through a well-
organized petition
addressed to the
Ethiopian
government.

visory Council was contacted
several months ago, its direc-
tor, Abraham Bayer, found lit-
tle support for the petition
and campaign.
Bayer said the proposal had
been discussed three times
over the past four months,
and that most of the organi-
zations "were opposed both to
the petition and its language,
and felt that it would arouse
a negative response in the
Ethiopian leadership."
Participating in the discus-
sion were the American
Jewish Committee, the
American Jewish Congress,
the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations
(Reform), the Anti-Defa-
