Robert Lyons, In the Talmud Torah Ben-Maimon School, Damascus, Syria 1994
The school was established in the Jewish quarter in 1944, and in addition
to Jewish studies, lessons were conducted according to the program of the
Syrian Ministry of Education. In 1992 there were 70 pupils in the school. It
is still open today, although it has almost no pupils and its future
existence is in doubt, as few Jewish children are left in Syria.
