The Jewish Community in Port Said 1869-1956 #galicia


Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

My article about the short lived Jewish community in Port Said, Egypt
appeared today Apr 22nd, 2018 in the English edition of "Haaretz" daily.
My main findings are that the first Jewish settlers there were >from
Galicia, followed by Jews >from Aden, the Ottoman Empire and the
Russian Empire. A partial list of rabbis who served the community is
included.

Shall be glad to receive corrections and additions.
