2014 marked 30 Years to “Operation Moses”, the Aliya of Ethiopian Jewry. Beit Hatfutsot – the Museum of the Jewish People was the only institution that photographed and documented this Aliya and the absorption of Ethiopian Jewry in Israel during the period of 1984 – 1991. 30 years after, Beit Hatfutsot, together with photographer Doron Bacher and film director Orly Malessa, joined in preparing an exclusive and original exhibition that will examine what transpired to the community over the last 30 years.
This innovative and inspiring new exhibition at the Museum of the Jewish People reveals that heroes are a vital part of Jewish culture. Jews, like every other people, teach the new generation about the values and actions they should pursue through its choice of heroes. Heroes are the subject of countless stories and dreams. They are our role models.
