Picture Of the Day


A newly immigrated Ethiopian Jewish boy attends a welcoming ceremony at Ben Gurion Airport, Israel, Monday, Oct. 29, 2012. Some 240 Ethiopian Jews arrived Monday, as part of Operation “Dove’s Wings” to bring to Israel the remainder of the Falash Mura, a group of Ethiopians whose Jewish ancestors were forcefully converted into Christianity.

    1. The people living in Putti, in the Pallisa district of Uganda, are making a very strong case for recognition as Jews. The villagers all belong to the Abayudaya people.

      Their community centres around the Beit Knesset She'erit Yisrael, the Orthodox synagogue, which has about 130 members. The congregation is collectively known as the Kahal Kadosh She'eri Yisrael (Holy Community Remnant of Israel).

      Putti villagers currently practice Judaism according to Orthodox halacha, as candidates for Orthodox conversion. Villagers perform brit milah on baby boys at eight days old, keep kosher, observe the Shabbat, holy days and Taharat haMishpacha
