As of several days ago, there are no Jews left in Afghanistan: Zabulon Simantov, 62, has departed from his home in Kabul and is headed for the United States. According to the Jerusalem Post, “despite the recent takeover of Afghanistan by the extremist Taliban movement, Simantov had refused to leave the country and had said he was not worried by the new regime. In recent days however, he became increasingly concerned by the threat to his life from the Afghan branch of Islamic State and other terrorist groups, and finally decided to leave.” With his departure, the 1500-year presence of Jews in Afghanistan has come to an end.
