Yemeni Jewish Community

Location: SANA'A, Yemen
December 28, 2016

Members of the Yemeni Jewish community wait to receive food supplies provided by Mona Relief Yemen, at a Yemeni army-protected compound in Sana’a, Yemen, 28 December 2016. According to reports, the 67 Yemeni Jews who refused to join the secret airlift to Israel, live in the Yemeni capital Sana’a and in the neighboring city of Raydah. The impoverished and war-affected Arab country at the southern tip of the Arabian peninsula once had tens of thousands of Jews, but most have emigrated to Israel after the creation of the state of Israel in 1948.
