Some minorities are very small that many people aren't aware of them. Nervana Mahmoud (@Nervana_1) wrote in her blog about the Jewish population in Alexandria that is composed of 18 women and four men, and how according to the Jewish religious customs, six more visitor men are required for them to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, in Eliyahu Hanavi Synagogue in Alexandria.
