This undated photograph shows Carmen Weinstein, leader of Egypt’s dwindling and aging Jewish community, with her dog. Weinstein died Saturday, April 13, 2013 at the age of 82, after leaving behind a legacy of preservation effort in preserving what is left of synagogues and a once-sprawling Jewish cemetery. Weinstein will be buried on Thursday in the Bassatine cemetery she worked tirelessly to save. According to a friend of Weinstein, Magda Haroun, only around 40 Egyptian Jews remain in the country, split between Cairo and the Mediterranean city of Alexandria that was also once a thriving multicultural and cosmopolitan hub.(AP Photo/Samir W Raafat) NO SALES
