Nadia Haroun, deputy head of the Egyptian Jewish community, has died.
Haroun, sister of Magda Haroun, the current head of the Egypt’s Jewish community, suffered a heart attack late Thursday night, Al Ahram reported.
Haroun , a lawyer, was the daughter of Shehata Haroun, a prominent leftist activist who refused to emigrate to Israel, known for his opposition to the Camp David Accords. She is survived by a son and daughter.
Haroun’s funeral is planned for March 11 at Adly Synagogue in Cairo. The Jewish community in Egypt now has less than 100 members.
