Most Ethiopians in Israel Find Life Hard

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/world/article/most_ethiopians_in_israel_find_life_hard_20040416

The mix of Western and African culture at the Zamena club, one of a small number of discos that cater to Israel's young Ethiopian immigrant set, appears to be an extension of these young Ethiopians' experience in life in Israel, in general. Some were born in Israel or came here as young children. Along with their parents, they made their way to Israel as part of the modern exodus-style airlifts of Operations Moses and Solomon in 1984-85 and 1991.
