Chapter Summary

The Jews in Kurdistan were concerned about their personal security. To some extent, their concerns reflect the relative lack of security and the lesser standing of Jews in the tribal setting. The recurrent acts of abduction of young women by Kurdish tribesmen, the robbery and even murder of merchants and peddlers on the roads and other kinds of financial exploitation of Jews by tribal Kurds that are dealt with throughout this book, reflect the lack of personal security of both rural and urban Jews. The noticeable trends of migrations of Jews, especially from the tribal region to the relatively safer urban centers, demonstrate the lack of personal security of rural Jews.

Keywords: Kurdistan; migration; rural Jews
