Not very long ago, a small but thriving community of Jews called the island of Penang their home. With a presence spanning across two centuries, this little-known but truly Malaysian community eventually vanished, but traces remain!
With prose by Zayn Gregory accessible even to goys of all ages, and beautiful illustrations by Arif Rafhan, The Last Jews of Penang brings to life a poignant moment in Malaysia’s rich multicultural history.
