There were about 200 Jews left in Yemen in 2010, according to the North American Jewish Data Bank. But according to media reports, like many of the Arab Spring countries, the numbers dwindled after the fall of President Abdullah Ali Saleh. The chief rabbi in Yemen, Yahya Yosef Mosa, pictured above, still lives in Sanaa, even though the community has been under pressure since the fall of Saleh, who supported them.
