Hear Dr. Paul Liptz teach us about the Yemenite Jews journey to return home.

The Yemenite Jews dreamed of returning to Israel through the centuries and beginning in the 1880s, small groups arrived. However, in the 1949 “Operation Magic Carpet/On the wings of Eagles”, the community almost disappeared with 49,000 being flown to Israel in El Al planes. This immigrant group contributed in many ways to Israel’s multi-ethnic society and were seen as somewhat exotic with ancient customs and a different Hebrew pronunciation. Although it included some traumatic events, their integration was mostly successful.
