Israeli father reunited with children after 20 years

Yahalem Tadasa made Aliyah from Ethiopia in 2002, but his children Abrarao and Kano stayed behind; after two long decades apart, the family is back together again in Israel; 'this is a dream come true'.

“This is a dream come true. I can’t believe I’m seeing my children after 20 years. A years-long battle for the right to see my children has come to an end," Tadasa said. Abrarao and Kano are part of a group of 160 immigrants from Ethiopia that arrived in Israel on Tuesday.

"I'm always by their side since they arrived in Israel. Neither of us had any sleep. We talk a lot and try to make up for the long years I waited for them to come," he said. "This is really a dream come true. Everybody's hugging and are with the extended family all the time. There are many tears of joy. We're having a hard time realizing that we have fulfilled our mission to bring them here after long years of fighting."
