Our Babylonian Heritage – The Shrine of Ezra the Scribe in Southern Iraq on the bank of the Tigris. In the 5th century B.C.E., the Prophet Ezra Ha-Soffer recorded the Bible, changed the Hebrew alphabet to the current square script, introduced the Synagogue as the place of worship in lieu of the Temple and later led an aliyah to Jerusalem.
It was said of Ezra that if the Torah had not been given to Moses, he would have been worthy to receive it.
It would be desirable for a delegation to be sent to Iraq to inspect our Jewish shrines all over the country.

'The Scribe' is the Journal of Babylonian Jewry. It has been published by the Exilarch's Foundation since 1971. The Magazine covers many areas of interest including subjects related to Jews of Iraqi origin. Its readership of about 5,000 is based in Israel, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and many countries of the Diaspora.It was founded and continues to be edited by Mr. Naim Dangoor, the grandson of Hakham Ezra Reuben Dangoor who was the Chief Rabbi of Baghdad, Iraq about 70 years ago.
