One Hundred Lebanese Jews

Out of the 18 “peacefully co-existing” religions we so often take pride in, in Lebanon, it is seldom reminded that one of them is Judaism.

As the Beirut synagogue is currently under renovation, a French journalist: Julie Lerat, took advantage of a recent visit to Beirut to record a radio documentary with Lisa, one of the few remaining Jews in Lebanon. A fun, smart, extroverted 50-year old living  in the historically Jewish neighborhood of “Wadi Abu Jmil”.

A very interesting piece and a new insight on inter-religious relations In Lebanon.
