Egypt Shuts Down Last Jewish Synagogue · September 14, 2012

By Gabriel Taylor
The last active Jewish synagogue in Egypt has been shut down, after holding services for 2,000 years. The reason given by the Egyptian authorities is security. This decision basically outlaws the High Holiday services in this nation, said Jewish representatives.

Rabbi Avraham Dayan, the former rabbi of Alexandria, who organizes a group of volunteers every year to pray at the site, says the decision to cancel had nothing to do with the Muslim Brotherhood coming into power. The leader of the Jewish community in Alexandria had “expressed his fear that worshippers would be targeted.”

However, “Levana Zamir, president of the Israel-Egypt Friendship Association…believes there is a connection between the new government and the failure to hold a quorum in Alexandria this year… ‘When they don’t want something to take place, they mention security reasons,’ she claims.”

Zamir also said this shutting down of the last active synagogue effectively ends Judaism in Egypt. “The authorities have found a way to take over the last Jewish bastion, since all the remaining synagogues are already archaeological and tourist sites. It is very sad.”

“This is yet another example of the fact that Jewish life is becoming extinct in the Muslim world,” said the Jewish Press.

Other minority religions are concerned that they too will see their liberties restricted in the name of security. One of the consequences of the “Arab Spring” has been the loss of security as the nations have been swept up in the tide of more radical Islam.

“All the forces of the powers of darkness are working against the human race to restrict religious liberty…” – The Upward Look, p. 44
