The Israeli government voted unanimously on Sunday to bring some 8000 members of the Falashmura from Ethiopia over the next four years.
Previous government decisions had stopped the emigration of the Falashmura in 2008.
The decision, sponsored jointly by Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and Interior Minister Eli Yishai, is purported to be "an end to the story of Ethiopian Jewry". The groups lobbying to allow the Falashmura to emigrate have promised to stop campaigning once the group currently waiting in a transit camp are on their way to Israel.
