Egypt’s tiny Jewish community, a frail remnant of a once flourishing minority, held a rare public ceremony on Thursday in memory of its veteran leader, Carmen Weinstein, but the country’s Islamist leaders stayed away.
Carmen Weinstein passed away on April 13 at 82. She was a very strong-willed and determined woman, a tenacious defender of the integrity and independence of Cairo’s Jewish community.
Egypt’s Jewish community has elected a new leader, Magda Haroun.
The leader of Egypt’s dwindling Jewish community died Saturday at the age of 82.
Roman Polanski, step aside: If we believe the Egyptian press, there’s another elderly Jew on the lam – only this time, no minors and no sexual misconduct are involved. Just a whole lot of cash.
