With the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the last Jewish synagogue has closed. Arutz Shevaobserves, “This spells the end of Jewish life in Egypt, over 3,090 years since the Egyptian exile ended and Moses led the Jews to the Land of Israel” (“Jewish Life in Egypt - the End,” Arutz Sheva, Sept. 4, 2012). The Eliyahu Hanavi Synagogue in Alexandria has stood since Hellenistic times following the conquests of Alexander the Great.
