Synopsis: 'Jews of Egypt' is a documentary that captures fragments of the lives of the Egyptian Jewish community in the first half of the twentieth century until their second grand exodus after the tripartite attack of 1956. It is an attempt to understand the change in the identity of the Egyptian society that turned from a society full of tolerance and acceptance of one another and how it changed gradually by mixing religious and political views into a society that rejects the others. This is a film about the cosmopolitan Egypt in the 40s and Egypt in the new millennium. How did the Jews of Egypt turn in the eyes of Egyptians from partners in the same country to enemies?
