THE JEWISH COMMUNITY


"Jews from Iraq, Iran and India settled in Bahrain in the late 19th century and became active in commerce and handicrafts. In 1947 there were anti-Semitic disturbances in which one Jew was killed and several injured. On holidays religious services are conducted in a private home, and the Jewish community maintains its own burial ground." Source: Click on Bahrain at WJC Communities website [September 2002/5]

There is a small indigenous Jewish community. Source
