My dad was born in Alexandria, Egypt in 1944.  He attended Collège Saint-Marc as a child.  My grandfather owned an import/export company when they were kicked out of Egypt in the 50's.  I would like to learn more about my family's history before they were forced to leave the country.  I believe it is an important part of my heritage as a Sephardic Jew.

I was born and raised in Egypt . I am an outcast too, I have been living in Michigan for the past 40years. I am a retired orthopedic surgeon. I totally support the action taken by the IDF against Hamas, they are like cancer and they will never change. My heart goes out to all the families of the soldiers who were lost in action defending the state of Israel. I also miss a lot of my Jewish friends I grew up with and dispersed all over the world and dreaming of the day that I would reunite with them again.

I am the daughter of Simone Leibowitz née Nahman, daughter of Raphael and Eliane Nahman. Simone was born in 1923 in Alexandria, where she lived till age 20, at which point she moved to Switzerland to attend medical school. Her parents followed her there in the 1950's. She never went back, though she had scheduled a bus tour of Egypt with my father in the 1990's, they cancelled it due to recent attacks on American tourists. I am fascinated to learn more about this time of my family's history.

My grandmother's family lived in Egypt, both in Cairo and Alexandria in the last century or more. Her name was Rachel Afif. Her father was Shebbeti Afif, a merchant, banker, and farmer. Her uncle was Eduard Pichoto. I believe he was a senator in the Eqyptian Senate at the start of the last century. Her brother Daniel was one of the secretaries to then King Fouad of Egypt. I guess that would have been in the early part of the 20th century. I am just curious about my family's history. Yours truly, Mike Hortens

I teach Arabic to Coptic students who used to live in Egypt or Sudan but now live in Brighton, in the UK. Their studies require them to know about the culture of Egypt and its history.

I found your website extremely interesting. I was born in Cairo, Egypt, and my family emigrated to Israel in 1951. The videos, sounds and music brought tears to my eyes. Even though I was a young child, I still remember those old days in Cairo.

Thank you for those memories.

My name is Simon Hassine I was first President of AZA Cairo. You were good enough to publish our first and second bulletin for many years. I came to visit your web now and then and remember the good old days. Sadly, you seem to have erased our story altogether. Any special reason?

I would appreciate it if you would re-publish our story and I thank you in advance.

A daughter, Jeanne Sciama, was born on 22.October.1910 to Ezra and Ida.

Kind regards

As a Muslim-Jewish-history scholar, i am on a mission to seek an apology from the Egyptian government for the plight of the Egyptian Jews. then seek the restoration of Jewish asserts in Egypt to their rightful owners. your prayers are appreciated.

I wish to announce to you that Levana Zamir, President of the Association for Jews from Egypt, in Israel, will be coming to the New York area.  She will be at your synagogue in Brooklyn on Saturday the 23rd of November, 2013.  I hope that you will look for her, and maybe you might have a smal Kiddush in her honor.  She is coming to New York because she will be one of the guests at the U.N., at a special session entitled "The Forgotten Refugees", on Thursday the 21st of November, 2013.

Shabbat Shalom,
viviane Levy
