I wish to announce to you that Levana Zamir, President of the Association for Jews from Egypt, in Israel, will be coming to the New York area. She will be at your synagogue in Brooklyn on Saturday the 23rd of November, 2013. I hope that you will look for her, and maybe you might have a smal Kiddush in her honor. She is coming to New York because she will be one of the guests at the U.N., at a special session entitled "The Forgotten Refugees", on Thursday the 21st of November, 2013.
So pleased that I had the chance to stop by and say hello. You have a very nicely assembled website. Just goes to show what hard work and dedication to a project does. It eventually pays off. Good job!

I left Egypt in 1956 - I was 17 years old.
I felt nostalgic for 25 years ...!
I am very happy to have found your site, and look forward to the information
you have gathered.
My heart-felt thanks,
Like to find connections between NAhmad family in CAIRO and Damascus, my grand father is Ezra Nahmad from Cairo sone of David Nahmad, I was born in Cairo, my mother Victoriaa Nahmad married Yacob Douer from Damascus. I found Namad amily also in Syria, is there any information about connection?

Never went back,never had the desire to do so
There were two branches of the Green family in Egypt. One in Cairo and one in Alexandria. They were descended from two brothers (originally called Ghren) who took Tuscan nationality between 1838 and 1842. The Alexandria branch were connected with cotton and were wealthy enough to found one of that City's major synagogues.
As a member of the Cairo branch I had always been keen to meet or correspond with a member of the Alexandria branch and I was very excited when a few years ago I talked on the telephone to Professor Andre Green (whose Wilkipedia entry is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9_Green). Unfortunately his father who was part of the Alexandria branch had quarrelled with his siblings and, after moving to Cairo, lost touch with them. Sadly Andre died a year or two ago.
Does anyone know a member of the Alexandria branch?

I learned mcuh from reading "My Last Years In Egypt" and thank Joseph Hakim Pob. I have also recently read about the Jewish poplulation in Greece,(Salonika, Turkey, and Italy. My interest is in understanding or discovering what happened to my father and mother-in-law as young people, and why their families emigrated to Alexandria from Salonika and Istanbul respectively. Albert Sasson, my father-in-law stowed away on a ship at the age of 10 leaving Salonika for Alexandria because his family was slaughtered in Greece. As an orphan he grew up in Egypt, learned the trade of electrician and married Rose Gormezano whose family had emigrated from Turkey. Rose's father was a rabbi. Their son was my husband, Michel Sasson, who was a child prodigy violinist. He attended St. Andrew's school in Alexandria. He has recently passed away this past March. I would be grateful for any information about his family history. I teach Humanities at Tallahassee Community College and always include as much as I can in both the Pre-histoy to Baroque Humanities and the Baroque to Modern Humanities as I can about the Jewish peoples and their history starting with Canaan, in Mesopotamia and the Diasporas and Exoduses through WWII and beyond to what I know about the various groups, Saphardic and Ashkenazy. I work at promoting understanding and tolerance through a mutliculturalistic approach.

Thank you for your website. I have been researching my family's history and have not had much luck. My father Alain Silvera was born in Alexandria in 1930 to Sion Silvera and Vera Miloslavsky. He grew up in Alexandria and graduated from Victoria College before coming to the US and settling here after his education.
I have been trying to learn more about his life and my grandfather's life in Alexandria. Were there any other Silvera's in the community? I understand that they lived on Rue Bolanachi. Are there any other sources that you think I can find? I can be reached at my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone in the US at 610-260-2604.
I am chronically sad about the barbarian crime of deporting egyptian jews out of their country, waiting for the pleasure of meeting some of you

It is good to know that there is such a site !
I acquired a Jewish, wooden framed, stained-glass Arch from Cairo,
with a Star of David in the middle of the Arch, from an antique dealer in Toronto.
I would like to know if anyone can tell me which building it came from?
Who can I talk to?

Just wondering whether anyone reading this wonderfully interesting site remembers anything about the Shama family who lived at 41 Rue Aly El Leisse, Alexandria, Egypt during the 1940s.
Please, if anyone knows anything I would love you to get in touch.
Many thanks and kindest regards
I was born in Cairo Egypt on July 13th 1944.
Was arrested on the first day of The 6 Days War in June 1967, thrown in prisoned tortured than later expelled to Italy with the help of the Italian government since I was an Italian subject.
I immigrated to Canada later.
Mr. Obama, sooner or later the Great American people will know the truth.
You are supporting Mr. Morsi who has been taped saying, "We need to breast feed our children hatred of the Jews. Kerry has a copy of the tape. Morsi's strongest supporter in Egypt is Mohamed El Zawahrh, the elder brother of el Qaeda's Aymann El zawahri!. Yet you are claiming to the Great
American people, to your senate &... to AIPAC that you are directing the American tax payers money to maintain the safety & stability of the state of Israel.
You are either blind or deliberately mislead .
The revolution that happened today in Egypt was a result of the demonstrations of more than 20 million "civilian" demonstrators.
The council that is overseeing the transition until the elections has on its board the following figures.
The head of Egypt's supreme court justice.
Mr. El Sissi one member of Sadat's great military army, that wrote & vowed to protect the peace treaty with Israel.
Present in the council was the moderate Islamist head of al Azhar, a French educated Islamic Grand Imam & most loved & respected by all Muslims & Christians in the Arab world.
On the Council also was a Noble peace Prize winner, Dr. El Baradei.
Last but not least was present Pope Tawadros II, the Patriarche of Alexandria.
Mr. Obama you are trying to deceive the Great American people , & our neighbors North of the borders that this council is a threat to the state of Israel.
You want the great American people to believe that the state of Israel will be safer in your hands & that of Morsi & el Zawahri.
President Obama you may be hiding from the Egyptians in your White House, but trust me, sooner than later AIPAC will find you even while you are hiding in the Ivory Tower of yours.
Your own team will refuse to continue covering up for your failed policy. AIPAC will expose you in the senate.
The great American senators , on Bipartisan basis will have you exposed in Congress.
The great American citizens will reject your lies & wasting of the Tax payers dollars in the Middle East Casino.
Yes they can & yes they will.
Ameicans will no more believe in Obama Care, but rather "Obama does not Care." This will be the new Bi Partisan Bumper sticker.
Just remember you first read it here . It was written by an Egyptian .
