Tunisia’s Jews and Muslims living in harmony

Djerba, Tunisia – Pilgrims light candles in Ghriba Synagogue, an ancient temple on the island of Djerba, and the site of an annual pilgrimage sacred for the Jewish community.

Tunsia’s Jewish community is made of around 1700 people, and while this number is far less than the 100,000 people living in the country in 1960s, this community is one of the rare examples where Muslims and Jews live together in peace in the Arab world.
