The Yemenite Jewish community has a unique history that distinguish them from Jews of other Arab world countries. The way they migrated to the country is different, the relationship they had to the Arab rulers and the Arab populous was different, and the Jewish culture and traditions that developed in Yemen are uniquely distinct.
