Jewish Communities Around the World

By WARREN FREEDMAN

ZIMBABWE {formerly
Southern Rhodesia) is a
strange community where
Jews first settled in 1890.
Zimbabwe's Prime Minister
Robert Mugabe intently
fights against discrimina-
tion or persecution on the
basis of race or religion, and
yet promotes the interests of
the PLO!
Perhaps as many as 1,700
Jews (in 1968 there were
about 8,000 Jews) still re-
side here, principally in the
capital city of Harare (for-
merly Salisbury) and in the
city of Bulwayo. The city of
Harare has three congrega-
tions, and Pulwayo has but
one, but each city has its
own full-time rabbi. Unfor-



tunately there are very few
young Jews to carry on the
Jewish faith in the years to
come.
(formerly
ZAMBIA
Northern Rhodesia) still
has seven JeWish families
residing in the capital city
of Lusaka. In its Copperbelt,
Jews up to 1963 had estab-
lished Jewish communities
in Luanshya, Ndola, Muful-
ira and Kitwe, but these
communities are no longer
the homes of Jews. Lusaka
still retains its one
synagogue.
MALAWY (formerly
Nyassaland) has perhaps
five or six Jewish families.
It is interesting to note that
for the 10-year period from
1953 to 1963 all three coun-

EGYPT'S
city of
Alexandria, Egypt's major
Mediterranean resort, is
proud of a well-preserved
synagogue standing on spa-
cious grounds at 69 Nebi
Daniel, a narrow street in
the center of Alexandria's
commercial area.
Built in 1880 the congre-
gation once numbered
30,000 Jews! Today, accord-
ing to Clement Setton,
president, there are slightly
more than 100 Jews in
Alexandria. (Women out-
number men by 2-1).
Unfortunately, the Egyp-
tian government is seeking
to make the synagogue into
a museum which would
preserve it but close it to
use. In 1979the late Anwar

BONN (JTA)— The State
Prosecutor has dismissed
charges against Kurt Be-
cher, a Bremen grain mer-
chant and former SS officer
accused of complicity in the
mass murders of Jews and
other atrocities during
World War II. _
Becher, said to have been
a confidant of SS chief Hein-
rich Himmler, was slated to
go on trial after charges
against him by a local jour-
nalist triggered a public
demand for an official in-
vestigation. Last summer
he resigned as a member of
the board of directors of
Hapag-Lloyd, the giant
West German shipping
company.
