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.
