Ebrahim Dawood Nonoo


Ebrahim Dawood Nonoo is the president of the Association of Gulf Jewish Communities and the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the House of Ten Commandments, the Jewish community in Bahrain. He previously served as a member of Bahrain’s Shura Council (Upper House of Parliament) from 2001-2006.

Nonoo’s family is one of the original Bahraini Jewish families. The Jewish community dates back about 140 years to the late 1800s, when a group of Iraqi Jews arrived in search of better professional opportunities and lifestyle. They have become part of the fabric of Bahraini society.
