Named after the second oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in the world, BASSATINE NEWS is a periodic newsletter put out by the JCC (Jewish Community Council) in Cairo, Egypt.
On internet since 1995 Bassatine News earned a reputation for being a responsible reference and resource. In fact no other Jewish source brings you so many authentic articles and stories directly from Egypt.
As the remaining members of the local Jewish community AND custodians of its heritage we alone can bring you the true and total Jewish experience in situ.
While your comments and feedback are greatly appreciated please note this is NOT a political discussion forum and we will not entertain ANY controversial issues. We welcome however cultural, artistic and historic inputs relevant to our community past and present.
