This riveting first person account of the role of the American Association for Ethiopian Jews in bringing about a modern day miracle is a must read for anyone who seeks to understand how Operations Moses, Sheba, and Solomon came to pass. If it is true, as the Talmud tells us, that 'he who saves a single life it is as if he has saved the entire world,' then Howard Lenhoff and the AAEJ have saved the world many times over, and Black Jews, Jews, and Other Heroes explains how and why they did it.
The book is a literary tour de force in praise of a monumental organizational achievement. May it inspire others to replicate their triumph on behalf of other downtrodden and repressed peoples who, unlike Ethiopian Jewry, still await the salvation of a helping hand."
