The Jewish community in Sudan was established in the late 19th century, and concentrated in the capital Khartoum. By the middle of the 20th century the community included some 350 Jews, mainly of Sephardi background,[1] who had constructed a synagogue and a Jewish school.[2] Between 1948 and 1956, some members of the community left the country, and it ceased to exist by the early 1960s.[3][4]
