The capital and largest city of Kenya. Jewish settlement in Kenya began when in August 1903, the British colonial secretary offered the Zionists a part of the territory in Kenya (the "Uganda Scheme") for their own autonomous country at the Sixth Zionist Congress. Although, this proposal was rejected, several Jewish families immigrated to Kenya. The Nairobi Hebrew Congregation was established; by 1913 when 20 Jewish families lived in Nairobi and the first synagogue was built.
