Was there a Jewish Temple in Ancient Egypt?

There was a whole colony of them, they built their houses and it seems set them around a small temple, at least according to the papyri.

In the Jerusalem Post:

… The temple itself was small, in fact only half of it remained, but it had a fine tile floor in two layers, indicating that the first had been destroyed and then replaced. It stood in a courtyard of fine plasterwork, while the houses only had crude mud floors. So this was the temple, and the papyri were true…

 

One thought on “Was there a Jewish Temple in Ancient Egypt?

  1. Jewish military units in the 5th century do not surprise me. That they would construct their own temple or shrine complex isn’t surprising either. In my view, the title of this news report is misleading. This is hardly “ancient ” Egypt.

    Ancient Egypt reflects the Kushite religious practices.
