Did you know?

Miss Israel is ethiopian emigrant

Edie Roodman said someone who has become one of the more well-known Ethiopian emigrants to Israel is Yityish Titi Aynaw, Miss Israel 2013.

Aynaw was the first Ethiopia-born contestant to win the title. According to published reports in Israel, Aynaw was born in Ethiopia's Gondar province and came to Israel with her family when she was 12.

She served as an officer during her military service in the Military Police Corps of the Israeli Defense Forces. Aynaw, a resident of Netanya, has said she hopes to represent all Israelis as Miss Israel.
