I was born in 1939 at Alexandria and make Aliah to Israel via Italy at 1949. From that time i am living in Israel in a Kibutz.
I make a family tree but it missed my father ancestors.
I look for a relatives of my father Marco or Marc Mosseri that lived in Alexandria until our Aliah at 1949. ilook for my grandfather and grandmother of my father side, don't know their names, born date and other informations. may be we have relatives in the Mosseri Cairo branch.
please i would apreciate any help or informations.
I am currently trying to research my great-grandmother ESTHER MENASCE in order to find out if there is any way I can authenticate her sephardic background. Her daughter, my grandmother, Renée Chamay was born in Alexandria in 1907 and I have a document signed by Prof. Raphael della Pergola in 1912, who was the GRAND RABBIN at the time, to certify the register of her birth (and naming her mother, my great-grandmother) within the Communauté Israelite á Alexandrie. I would be very grateful indeed for any advice and would happily make a donation to the historical society that can help me authenticate Esther's membership of the Sephardic Community and also Rabbi della Pergola's status.
I accidentally came across some pictures of the Vitali Madjar synagogue in Heliopolis. I felt like someone gave me an electric shock when I saw those pictures. I felt both happy and sad at the same time. We were living in the house located at the back of the court yard between the synagogue and the school [Abraham Btesh or Abram Btesh]. I went to that school for my elementary schooling until October 1956 and in March 1959, I had my Bar Mitzvah at that synagogue. We left Egypt in August 1963 and I always dream of our time there. I make it a point to describe life there and talk about these days to my daughter and grand children.

Expelled from Egypt with my family in 1956. On the first ship of refugees out of Alexandria. Arrived in Venice and then to Paris, all without a home or work permit. Finally to the US in 1960 - home.
My father was born in Cairo, my great grandfather with his children and grandchildren left Egypt to Israel, his name was Joseph Zafrani. He was very famous for being extremely wealthy and having two wives which from one he had 10 children and the other 9. They arrived to Israel with 70 siblings, the prime minister then Ben gurion came to great them and all the media, I have rare pictures of those moments. They all received apartments in Ramat Gan. Some stayed in Israel some came to NY. B"H in both countries we have seen success both spiritually and financially. Blessed is our ה' that always watches over us. הנה לא ינום ולא ישן שומר ישראל. Currently we pray in the famous Egyptian synagogue Ahaba V'ahva in Brooklyn NY.

I´ll write in french !
J´aimerai connaitre des personnes venues d´Egypte et qui habitent à S.Paulo ! C´est drôle, pour les egyptiens
qui frequentent le fameux club de luxe A Hebraica, chacun se sent superieur à l´autre ! Par ex. ceux qui habitaient à Haret el Yahoud, ici, ils sont devenus des Messieurs !!
Comme j´habitai le Caire, tout juste à côté du temple
Ismaiilia, Shaar al Shamaim ! c´etait beaucoup mieux!
Je suis ici depuis Novembre 1957.

Seeking information on the Births deaths and marriages of Jews in Alexandria and Cairo
Lived in Alexandria till 1949 and was seven. Would like to read more personal stories. Am writing a memoir for my grandchildren and need more information. Would like to find the friends I knew in Alexandria.
Just finished the book: City of the Sun by Julian Maio published by Greenleaf Books, 2014 and was inspired.
I would like to know more about the rich history of the Jewish people of Egypt.

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 left Egypt in 1918. I've been here since
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.
