A Cairo synagogue built in 1934 is slated to open Friday for the first time in many years. Ha’aretz reported Monday that the head of Cairo’s Jewish community, Carmen Weinstein, and Israel’s ambassador to Egypt, Shalom Cohen, arranged to reopen the synagogue, which had been closed because so few Jews remain in Egypt.
