Israel is planning a secret operation this year to airlift hundreds of Jews out of Yemen, Britain's Sunday Times newspaper said. The newspaper, quoting unidentified Jewish sources, said the plan, code-named Operation Magic Carpet, would be similar to that which evacuated thousands of Jews from Ethiopia in 1984 and was likely to take place before Israel's general election in June.

The heart and soul of the Latino dancer is embedded in the folklorico tradition. But not all Latino dancers have their sights set on Mexican-style folklorico.

Thousands of Falashas, the black Jews of Ethiopia, have been airlifted to Israel in the last month, the biggest such exodus since the 1950s, Israeli officials said Thursday. Details of the airlift were kept secret in order not to jeopardize Israel's relations with third countries with whom it has no formal ties. "Human lives are at stake," an official remarked. Israeli officials refused to say how the Ethiopian Jews were taken out of the drought-devastated East African country.

In a discovery that gives sudden credence to one of Israel's most persistent conspiracy theories, a California woman has been proved to be the daughter of a Yemenite Jewish immigrant whose baby was taken from her almost half a century ago. Tzila Levine, now of Sacramento, was 1 year old in 1949 when she was taken from her mother, Margalit Umassi, in a chaotic immigrant transit camp and given a short time later to apparently unsuspecting adoptive parents elsewhere in Israel.
