Comments I am a first generation American born to Rachel and Charles Jampolsky of Cairo, Egypt. My mother's maiden name is Benchouchan, daughter of Marie and Vitali, and Sephardic. My father(Ashkenazi) passed away in 2004, he was the son of Ethel and David Jampolsky. My parents fled Egypt in the late 50's, went to Paris for 2 years, then on to the states(Brooklyn, NY)My mother lives in Hallandale, Florida in a building where there are many Egyptian Jews. If anyone is looking for a large Egyptian Jewish population, it's here in South Florida. I always take pleasure in telling people my background since most people have no idea that Egyptian and Jewish can be used in the same sentence! Just want everyone to know that I am proud of my heritage. Contact me if you want to find out the names of all the folks living in Hallandale,Fl.

Comments Somehow even as dispersed as we are, in the four corners of the world, we kept a close friendship with our peers - We were all reared in Egypt hence the bond - We share so many memories that where ever we may be -Our sincere affection for one and other is there. I guess with us ends this saga as our children will not share the same emotions being brought up in different circles.

Comments I left Egypt in 1955-56 with a scolarship to go to Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois. My parents were beside themselves, though they could see it had to be done. I wonder what happened to all our belongings and our accounts at the Barclays Bank and our safety box there. I miss the jewelry and my mother's diamond parrure of earings and ring. Blanche

God Bless..

Comments Hello: My name is Larry Grafanakis. I found your sight on the internet and was very touched by the story of the Jewish people in Alenandria. I am going on a trip to Crete, Greece and would like to visit your community if that would be OK with you. I am Greek by nationality, but the community of which I am a member has a heart for the Jewish people. We recognize how much the world really owes to the Jewish people. I would really appreciate if I could come for a visit. I would just need someone to contact or an address inAlexandria. I am leaving for Crete on November 7th and would like to come to Alexandria on about the 20th for a couple days. Sincerely Larry Grafanakis

Comments I was born in Egypt and left in 1970, and only then I realized that a huge part of our history has been altered and we were misled by government after government. If Egypt has any honour or justice, they should at least offer compensation for pain and suffering inflected upon Egyptian Citzens, simply because of thier religion is not Islam. Excellent site and keep up the networking, maybe one day an Egyptian government will listen and return what has been stolen by force back to the Egyptian Jews. Always remeber Philo was en Egyptian historian of Jewish religion, lived in alexandria long before Islam or the Arabs even came to Egypt circa 1st century AD. So suffice to say Egypt is your home land and you were forcebly evicted from your home only because you were not moslems? they some what doing it again with the copts now.
