01 Apr Adiso and his family want to celebrate Passover
Adiso Kahson is nine years old. He made Aliyah to Israel from Ethiopia last week with 13 additional family members
Finally, the Kahson family was approved for Aliyah, and The Jewish Agency for Israel brought them to Israel.
Little had they known that their dream would be fulfilled during a coronavirus pandemic.
Adiso has aunts and uncles living in Haifa and Be’er Sheva who he is waiting to meet for the first time, but he will have to wait longer now, since the Kahsons went directly into quarantine upon their arrival to Israel.
The Jewish Agency has taken care of Adiso and his family’s immediate needs, but they will not be able to leave their homes, visit family members or see their new country for weeks, possibly months to come. They are receiving daily food staples and emotional support, but the holiday of Passover is near and the coronavirus crisis remains very serious in Israel.
