The Jews of Bahrain: A Resilient Community in the Persian Gulf

Hosted By: Qesher

The Kingdom of Bahrain, identified in biblical times as the place of the Garden of Eden, has one of the smallest Jewish communities in the world. But this resilient collective can claim to be the only indigenous Jews left in the Persian Gulf. Since the signature of the Abraham accords establishing diplomatic relations between Bahrain and Israel, a new era has begun. The Jewish community feels comfortable worshiping in public after many decades, and those who left for Israel can visit their homeland freely. All this creates an atmosphere of coexistence absolutely exceptional in the Middle East.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
