As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
Rabbi Uzi Meshulam (60) died on Friday afternoon.
Meshulam was an activist who claimed that thousands of Yemenite babies were taken away from their families by the Israeli government when they were brought to Israel between 1948 and 1954 .
Meshulam’s activism escalated until it resulted in a standoff between Israeli police and Meshulam’s followers in 1994, which left one person dead, and 11 people arrested.
But the end result was that the government established the Cohen Committee in 1995 to uncover where the missing Yemenite children went.
The committee provided explanations for many of the disappearances, though a few cases remained unexplained, and are still open. The committee said there was no government conspiracy.
