The Public Committee on Behalf of the Remnants of Ethiopian Jewry on Sunday welcomed the government's decision to allow 8,000 people from the Falash Mura community in Ethiopia to make aliya to Israel.

"The decision represents a moral, Jewish, human and Zionist decision from the first step that will come to complete the aliya from Ethiopia and create justice towards Jewish brothers who are begging to return and be connected to the Jewish nation and its land," read a statement by the committee.

The committee praised Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Interior Minister Eli Yishai who they said "initiated the decision."
