Operation Magic Carpet


This historical video documents the dramatic and clandestine rescue of over 48,000 Jews from Yemen. Since that exodus, small numbers of Yemenite Jews have continued to return (or make Aliyah) to Israel. This video shows the emotional regathering of long-separated family members - seeing each other for the first time in over 40 years. The Bible prophesied over 2000 years ago that although the Jewish people would be scattered to all the nations of the earth, God Himself would regather them to their promised land. Today in 2016, there remain 50 Jews in Yemen facing an uncertain future. The video is from Karen Heysod/United Israel Appeal in 1993 and is provided for educational purposes.
