(JTA) — Nadia Haroun, the deputy head of Egypt’s tiny Jewish community, has died.
Haroun, 59, whose sister, Magda, heads the community, was buried Tuesday in Cairo. She died after suffering a heart attack last week.
Hundreds attended Haroun’s funeral, including several Egyptian public figures, Ahram Online reported.
Haroun was a lawyer and an architect. Her father, Chehata, was a nationalist politician who was anti-Zionist.
There reportedly are fewer than 100 Jews living in Egypt.
