FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1991

A new arrival learns Hebrew from a young tutor.

Emphasis On Hebrew
For Ethiopian Olim

Sixty percent of the 14,000
Ethiopian Jews who arrived
in Israel this year are under
the age of 18. Some 6,000 are
school-age and will begin
classes this fall with other
Israeli children.
In order to house the Ethio-
pian arrivals, new mobile-
home parks were established
and approximately 40 hotels

were converted into tem-
porary absorption centers.

The considerable number of
children created a distinct
challenge for the Jewish
Agency, the organization
funded primarily by the
United Jewish Appeal-
Federation Operation Exodus
Campaign.
