]Not many people know there existed a Jewish community in Saudi Arabia. This Jewish community was concentrated in Southern Saudi Arabia. There was also some Jewish communities in Northern Saudi Arabia. It's believed that the Saudi Jews are descendants from the local Arabian tribes that converted to Judaism. An another theory states that they are from the lost tribes of Israel. It's well known that many Arabian tribes converted to Judaism more readily than to Christianity, that one time Judaism was the official religion of Yemen. Judaism also spread across Arabia. The Saudi Jewish community was known but at the same time invisible. Most Saudi Jews would migrate to Israel in 1948. The Saudi Jews speak the Hebrew and Arabic. Most assimilated into the Yemenite Jewish community.
