THE JEWISH COMMUNITY
Black Jews. [August 2009]
Some believe that a Jewish presence existed in Cameroon via merchants from Egypt . According to some accounts, these communities observed rituals kashrut and  wore tefillin. Others claim that Jews migrated southward into Cameroon due to the Islamic conquests of North Africa. In 2009, only about a dozen Jews live in Cameroon. The congregation is mostly from Israel.
