Leader Of Lebanon’s Jewish Community Just Passed Away


Isaac Arazi, the former leader of Lebanon’s Jewish Community Council, has passed away at the age of 80. His family and the community’s lawyer, Bassem el-Hout, confirmed his death, noting that Arazi was laid to rest on Tuesday.

Arazi’s leadership was marked by a significant effort towards the restoration of Beirut’s Magen Abraham synagogue, a vital symbol of Jewish history.

The Lebanese Jewish community, once numbering around 22,000 before the civil war (1975-1990), has now dwindled to approximately 30.
