Sheba and Solomon's Return: Ethiopian Children in Israel, by Nathan Moses Szajnberg, MD, offers a psychoanalytic in-depth description of the lives of Ethiopian Jewish children and their families who emigrated to Israel. The Amazon listing has a "look inside this book" feature, so you can read the Table of Contents and the selected pages the site offers. The author spent three years in a small town near Gaza, working with Ethiopian Jewish children and families, people who had been brought to Israel in emergency evacuations, the 1989 Operation Solomon, and the 1991 Operation Moses, to rescue them from persecution, forced conversion, and possible genocide. These are the people who are self-identified as Beta Israel, and who were called by the derogatory term "falasha", meaning "alien", in Ethiopia. They had maintained their Jewish identity for ages, possibly since Biblical times. Their description of their origins is that they are descendants of Menelik, the son of Sheba and Solomon. The author emphasizes early childhood development in traumatized families, using Bowlby and attachment theory.
