The American Colony and the Yemenite Jews

Israel Daily Picture -- Now Approaching 900,000 Visitors


Further to our previous posting on the special relationship between the American Colony and the new Yemenite Jewish community in Jerusalem at the end of the 19th Century, we present a group portrait illustrating the relationship.



A "Gadite" elder?
The photo, taken in 1904, appears to show one of the Colony's founders, Anne Spafford, sitting next to a "Gadite" elder.

The photo is part of an album in the Library of Congress collection that belonged to Anne's daughter, Grace.
