While immersed in Jewish studies at Bais Chana’s retreat for women, a senator walked in.

It was Senator Rudy Boschwitz (R-MN), who negociated the release of Ethiopian Jews in 1991 in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia.

Operation Solomon.

One of the most daring missions in history. It resulted in the successful release of 14,000 Ethiopian Jews, who were flown to Israel within a tight window of opportunity: 24 hours.

The operation had required the combined efforts of the United States and Israel. Senator Boschwitz was the main American negociator.

And my friends and I were lucky to hear the inside story of Operation Solomon.
