One of ten new members appointed to Bahrain's Shura Council following a royal decree is Jewish historian Nancy Khedhouri.

Khedouri has written extensively on the Jewish community of Bahrain, which has dwindled from over 1,000 to just a few dozen today.

Three other women were appointed to the 40-member consultative council, and Ali Saleh Al Saleh was named chairman for the second consecutive three-year
term.
