28 September 2014

Over the past year, IAEJ has run an ongoing campaign against the government decision that continues to place the exclusive mandate on the management of issues concerning all Israeli citizens of Ethiopian origin in the hands of the Ministry of Absorption. As part of our continuing efforts, we are active on a number of fronts: through a social media campaign, an appeal to the High Court of Justice, Knesset committees, the media and more. Our demand is that the Ministry of Absorption be responsible for new immigrants only (just as it is responsible solely for new immigrants from other countries), and that the relevant ministries ensure the social welfare of Ethiopian Israelis, according to need.
