Russian Aliya (1990)

(1990) Dry Bones cartoon: the Russian aliya to Israel.
Today's Golden Oldie is a Dry Bones cartoon done 20 years ago today. It was October 07, 1990 and Israel was being hit by a flood of immigrants from the Soviet Union. In the following year, 1991, the teetering Soviet Union would collapse when Boris Yeltsin seized power.

1991 would also witness the miracle of another community of Israelites. It would be the return of the Ethiopians to this, their ancestral homeland. For other cartoons about the aliya of Jews to Israel just click on Aliya.
