Appreciation certificate for 12 years old Ethiopian-Israeli kid

Ethiopian Jews  in Israel are immigrants and descendants of the immigrants from the Beta Israel communities in Ethiopia who now reside in Israel.

Most of the community made Aliyah from Ethiopia to Israel in two waves of mass immigration assisted by the Israelgovernment: Operation Moses  (1984) and Operation Solomon (1991). Today Israel is home to the largest Beta Israel community in the world, with about 125,500 citizens of Ethiopian descent in 2011 , who are mainly assembled in the smaller urban areas of central Israel.

On 15 February a 12 year boy named Yakov Demissie was playing at a park in the suburb of Tel Aviv precisely near Bat Yam neighborhood when he found a stuffed with money and important documents then he went with his father to a nearby police station to return it to the owner .

Later in the afternoon the surprised chief of police and whole police department decided to give him an appreciation certificate to remind whole city that good deeds repays.
