El Ghriba Festival

Another piece in the same edition of Washington Times talks about the jewish community in Tunisia and the jewish festival of Lag B'Omer, that took place in the Island of Djerba.
This year, with 4,000 Jewish pilgrims in an Arab country, El Ghriba and Tunisia are sending a message of "brotherhood, tolerance and reconciliation" transcending international politics.
