Egypt's Minority Profile: Jews
The Jewish community in Egypt has dwindled to a margin of its original size as a result of forced deportation or voluntary migration, both responses to political and social discrimination.
Anti-Semitic hate speech has become a mainstay of Egyptian popular culture, confronting Egypt’s remaining Jews with the constant threat of harassment.
Synagogues in Egypt are closed most of the time, as security concerns and a lack of congregants have forced the cessation of all religious ceremonies. The buildings and Jewish cemeteries have been desecrated.
