Two weeks before an Israeli government program to double the immigration rate of Falash Mura from Ethiopia is set to begin, a compound operated by a New York-based humanitarian organization in Addis Ababa remains closed following threats against leaders of the Falash Mura community earlier this year.

Falash Mura Compound Reopens After Crisis

Staff Writer
The fenced-in compound operated in Addis Ababa by a New York-based humanitarian organization to feed and educate Falash Mura has returned to its normal schedule after being closed for three weeks recently because of death threats against some of the Falash Mura leaders, according to officials of the North American Conference on Ethiopian Jewry. NACOEJ, which has conducted activities in Ethiopia for two decades, had shut the compound in the wake of accusations of abuse that appeared in the Israeli press and on Ethiopian television.
