APTOPIX Mideast Tunisia Jews Photo Essay

In this Thursday, Oct. 29, 2015 photo, a student covering his head with a Kippah poses for the camera as he leaves the main Talmudic school at Hara Kbira, the main Jewish neighborhood on the Island of Djerba, southern Tunisia. Tunisia’s Jewish population has dwindled from 100,000 in 1956, when the country won independence from France, to less than 1,500, mainly as a result of emigration to France and Israel. But unlike in much of the rest of the Arab world, Tunisian Jews have seen little direct persecution and have only rarely been targeted by extremists. (AP Photo/Mosa'ab Elshamy)
