The director of ‘Jews of Egypt’ was planning a guerilla campaign to show the controversial documentary after it was banned. But the Egyptian government unexpectedly had a change of heart.
Egyptian authorities rescinded a ban on the screening of a documentary about Egyptian Jews.

The goal of ‘Jews of Egypt’ is to disentangle Judaism from Zionism in a country where Jews lived in peace and prosperity for centuries, until the founding of Israel.
