Yemeni Jews are Jews who live in or used to live in Yemen and follow the traditions of their ancestors. Many Yemeni Jews have however moved to Israel due to the oppression by the official government of Yemen, oppression by militant groups in Yemen such as Ansar Allah and Al-Qaeda.[1][2] As of 2023, there is only one known Jew left in the country of Yemen.[3]
