- The Jewish Community, established by Jews from present day Iraq, dates from about 1776. By 1914, there were about 200 Jews but the community declined following the First World War and ceased to exist by the 1920's. However, the government of Kuwait had approved on building a new city called Madinat Al-Hareer, which will include skyscraper that will, among other things, house a mosque, a synagogue and a church under a single roof.
