Penang's Jewish History

The last Jew to leave Penang | Free Malaysia Today

Here's an article about Penang's Jewish history.  There is even a road called Jalan Yahudi ( Jew Road) with a cemetary near it, but now sadly it is changed to a different name. It is nice to see that even with our current gov't doesn't recognize or have diplomatic relations with Israel; political reasons aside, the Jewish community played a role in Penang's history.
