Iceland: For the first time since WWII……


REYKJAVIK, Iceland – Nearly half an hour after Rosh Hashanah services were set to begin, the congregation in this chilly city still was one man short of a minyan. But as the small group of Jewish expats and their Icelandic spouses mingled and waited, no one complained.

After all, what’s 30 minutes to a community that’s been waiting more than 60 years ?

Most of Iceland’s Jews — there are about 40 in total — live in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital and a compact, vibrant city of about 120,000. In all, some 315,000 people live in Iceland.

Read it all via the link above at The Jerusalem Post.

Almost as few Jews in Iceland as there are in South Park. 😉
