Returnees from Babylon

The Jews of Iraq started returning to the Holy Land in the 1950's/
Operation "Ezra & Nechemia" brought more than 100,000 Olim to Israel. Yad L'achim pioneered a campaign to ensure that this important Aliyah wouldn't be lost in a spiritual sense.

The main thrust of the efforts was the children's education. Yad L'achim published posters in the Jewish-Iraqi language, in Hebrew lettering, cautioning the Olim to remember what is most important – Education.
Foster families were arranged as needed.

For your interest – we are posting one of these historical posters in its original form, with a Hebrew translation
