Library Journal - Library Journal
During the fourth century A.D. , Ethio pian tribes that had adopted Judaism retreated into the mountains of Gondar to escape persecution. For nearly 1000 years their descendants, the Falasha, believed themselves to be the only Jews left in the world. Following the Fala sha's plea to return to Jerusalem in 1862, the world Jewish community de bated the whys and hows of resolving the issue until early 1980, when Israel began concerted efforts to retrieve them. Parfitt describes how, under the highly secretive supervision of Mossad, all but a few had been transported by February 1985, when the world found out. The ramifications of the ``exodus'' of the Falasha and their integration into Israeli society are fascinating, albeit scantily treated here. Recommend ed. David P. Snider, Casa Grande P.L., Ariz.
