Meet the Jews of Indonesia

There are more than 200 million people in Indonesia – the largest Muslim nation on the earth.

Today, just a few hundred Jews live there. It may just be a smattering of Jews, but they are proud of being Indonesian,

What is fascinating is that there is a massive pro-Israel presence in Indonesia.

But, this is of course among non-Jewish residents.

As Indonesia moves further away from an agricultural focus into more of an urbanized focus, it will surely reconsider it’s relationship with the State of Israel.

Parts of the country are still reeling from the most horrible natural disaster of the 21st century – the tsunami in 2004 in the Indian Ocean.
