Moise Safra was born on April 5, 1934 into a family of affluent Jewish bankers, in Beirut, Lebanon. The family's history in banking originated with caravan trade between Alexandria and Constantinople during the Ottoman Empire. The family relocated to Beirut after the First World War as Beirut was home to an already thriving Jewish community. Eventually, the Safras decided to move to Brazil in 1952. In 1955, Moise's 23-year-old brother, Edmond Safra, and their father, Jacob Safra, started working in Brazil by financing letters of credit for trade in São Paulo.
