QUERY: Jews in latter decades of 18th century Alexandria

Zvi Zohar's picture

I am writing a paper on Rabbi Eliyahu Yisrael's portrayal of Jewish life in Alexandria, Egypt (he served as the community's rabbi from 1772 until his decease in 1784). I would be grateful for pointers to any research that has been done on the Jews of Alexandria in the second half of the 18th century. Many thanks, Zvi
