Welcome Back, Jews of Lebanon!

I just read something I found REALLY interesting! The Jews of Lebanon will not be hiding within us anymore, and they will reopen their Synagogue in Beirut, almost 4 decades after their closed it due to the Lebanese Civil War!

Most of the LEBANESE Jews have been living double lives for the passed 40 years, hiding their true religious beliefs, and publicly living as either Christians or Muslims, even though the Lebanese government acknowledged their existence in Lebanon.

Lebanese Jews said that they consider themselves Lebanese, and not Israeli. And their community is NOT a Zionist community.
