Ethiopia Expels Nine
For Proselytizing

New York (JTA) — Nine
American Jews were expell-
ed from Ethiopia last week
after being accused of pro-
selytizing and working
without permits.
The group, including eight
volunteers and one staff
member of the North Ameri-
can Conference on Ethiopian
Jewry, were leading classes
in basic Judaism for a group
of refugees hoping to
emigrate and settle in Israel.
"Four men showed up at
dinner (last) Wednesday
night," recounted Alison
Feit, one of the volunteers
deported from the Ethiopian
capital of Addis Ababa.
"They said, 'You have 30
minutes to pack your bags.
You're being arrested and
deported.' "
Ms. Feit, a student at Yale
University, had been in E-
thiopia just over two weeks.
The aborted classes had
been requested by the
Falash Mora, Christians of
Jewish descent who have left
their homes for the capital,
where they are waiting by
the thousands to emigrate.
A specially appointed
Israeli ministerial com-
mittee decided earlier this
year to admit only those
Falash Mora who have im-
mediate family in Israel, but
not as Jews. Those able to
prove their Jewish descent
on a case-by-case basis will
be admitted under Israel's
Law of Return, which guar-
antees citizenship for Jewish
immigrants.
The Ethiopian govern-
ment, while amenable to
emigration, is adamantly
opposed to any proselytiza-
tion. This reflects both the
position of the Ethiopian
Church and the fact that

Ethiopian Christians with
some Jewish ancestry
number in the hundreds of
thousands.
The number of actual
Falash Mora, whose
ancestors converted in the
past century, is smaller,
perhaps 30,000.
Some 2,800 Falash Mora
are living in Addis Ababa,
where they receive human-
itarian aid from the Ameri-
can Jewish Joint Distribu-
tion Committee. That aid
continues, despite the depor-
tations.
Among those deported was
Andy Goldman, who
directed NACOEJ activities
in Ethiopia. At least for the
moment, those other ac-

The number of
actual Falash
Mora, whose
ancestors
converted in the
past century, is
smaller, perhaps

tivities, including an
employment workshop and a
school, continue.
Until the arrival of Ms.
Feit and her fellow vol-
unteers, there had been no
Jewish studies taught in the
school.
Such classes, for. children
and adults, are "something
the Falash Mora have been
asking for, for a long time
