lovely family

She is very beautiful. What I find interesting is that her mother is an Egyptian Jew. I knew about the Jews in Biblical times but I wouldn’t have thought there would be many Jews in Egypt in modern times. Something to read about. How fascinating.

the most north african jews incl. egyptian are of iberian heritage (sephardi jews). that means they are from south european (spain, portugal, italy…) they were expelled from spain during the time of “reconquista” and moved then to countries like morocco, tunesia, egypt, turkey, syria, algeria etc.. but there are also jews who never left egypt since biblical times.
myself I am sephardi jew.
