2. The Yemenite Jews: Returning Home. The Yemenite Jews dreamed of returning to Israel through the centuries and, beginning in the 1880s, small groups arrived. However, in the 1949 ""Operation magic Carpet"", the community almost disappeared with 49,000 being flown to Israel in El Al planes. They are sometimes seen as exotic with ancient customs and a different Hebrew pronunciation.
