Er Riadh, Tunisia
Er Riadh is the modern name for the ancient Jewish village of Djirt, which became known as “Hara Seghira” or the “Small Ghetto”.
As the Jewish community of the village declined the synagogue was abandoned and the building is now in a state of dilapidation. The Jewish community of Er Riadh, numbering around 80, is now centered on the El Ghriba synagogue located on the southern outskirts of the village.
