Aliyah TO Yemen....

Reader comment on: The End of Yemen's Jews

Submitted by Vania Melamed (United States), Nov 8, 2009 23:36

B"H

Any idea of any other religious Jews willing to counter these horrible aliyot by not only remaining in Yemen, but by immigrating to Yemen from elsewhere? I'd say aliyah is normally a good thing, but when we risk losing our strongest, oldest, and most prophetic part of our heritage as observant Jews and relinquish our only positive influence in the Islamic middle East to only be second-class or assimilated into corrupt modern Westernised Israeli pop-culture, we risk succumbing to radical Islam even more and further weaken Jewish legitimacy to be in Arab lands. I don't know if there can be some puff piece written about the idea or what, but when my husband retires from the U.S. Marine Corps in another two terms, we wish to move our four children to Yemen, and remain. We can't afford to lose Yemen completely as we have in Iraq, where only 30 Jews remain, and the youngest is in his 40s and there have been no weddings or births. I'm desperately trying to find religious Jews as willing to move to Yemen as they might be to move to Israel. Thank you for your time.

Respectfully,

Vania R. Lemus
