Mideast Tunisia Jews Photo Essay

In this Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2015 photo, a Tunisian Jewish woman prays in La Ghriba, the oldest synagogue in Africa, on the Island of Djerba, southern Tunisia. The Jewish community in the resort island of Djerba traces its roots all the way back to Babylonian exile of 586 B.C., and is one of the few communities of its kind to have survived the turmoil around the creation of Israel, when more than 800,000 Jews across the Arab world either emigrated or were driven from their homes.
