The history of the Jewish community in Iraq spans a period of nearly twenty-six centuries. It was there, between the Tigris and the Euphrates, that the ancient Jewish settlement of Babylon was established, around 597 BC. With the exile of the inhabitants of the kingdom of Judah, King Nebuchadnezzar deported nearly 10,000 members of Jerusalem's elite to Babylon along with the treasures of the Temple and the royal palace.
