Jewish Tales Found
In Mid-Mediterranean

MOLLY AROST STAUB SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

B

osnian Jews, Muslim's

and Christians living
together peacefully —
but not in Bosnia-
Herzegovina. A recent visit to
southern Spain's major city,
Malaga, revealed this amaz-
ing development at the start
of a mid-Mediterranean
cruise aboard the Cunard
Princess, that stopped at ports
not on the usual itinerary.
On Malaga's Marques de
Larios, the main shopping
street of fashionable stores,
stands the jewelry shop Expo
Oro. Its owner, Meir Hayon, is
president of the Communidad
Israelita de Malaga, the Jew-
ish community of Malaga and
its 15-year-old synagogue. He
revealed that 1,200 Jews now
live on the Costa del Sol.
Mostly Sephardim, they ar-
rived from Morocco in the
1950s and '60s. Some
Ashkenazim emigrated to the
area after World War II.
Before this time, of course,
there had been virtually no
Jewish communities since the
Inquisition and 20th-century
restrictions under the Franco
government.
Additionally, a number of
British Ashkenazim retired
here because of the climate
and living standard, and
another group of Ashkenazic
Argentinians migrated

because of poor economic con-
ditions at home.
The Jewish Community's
vice president Leon Levy —
whose parents came from
Seville — enthusiastically
described the Bosnian com-
munity living in nearby Mi-
jas. Antonio Maldonado, its
Christian mayor, invited 25
Bosnian families to relocate
to nearby Mijas in November
1992. About 50 percent are
Sephardic Jews, while the
others are Muslims and
Christians.
That December, the fami-
lies arrived and were given
jobs — most are professionals:
lawyers, journalists, engi-
neers and architects. Mr. Levy
said Mayor Maldonado, who
has an affinity for Jews
because he spent months on
an Israeli kibbutz, guaran-
teed jobs to the new settlers.
Despite the ethnic differ-
ences tearing the communi-
ties apart in Bosnia-
Herzegovina, the new resi-
dents of Mijas pride them-
selves on their ability to live
together harmoniously.
Mijas, boasting 100 hotels,
offers an old, whitewashed
village a short drive into the
hills above the Mediterra-
nean. Visitors at terra cotta-
roofed buildings dripping
with colorful flowers enjoy
