On November 29, Ambassador Ido Aharoni welcomed H.E. Nancy Dinah Elly Khedouri, a Bahraini politician, businesswoman and writer. She has been a National Assembly of Bahrain member since 2010.
The Khedouri family are one of the Jewish families in Bahrain, a family of importers of tablecloths and linens. Her direct family is third generation in Bahrain, and she is the cousin of Houda Nonoo, the Bahraini Ambassador to the United States from 2008 to 2013.
In her 2007 book From Our Beginning to Present Day, she documented the history of Bahraini Jews from the first settlers in the late 1880s to the present day.
In 2010, Nancy Khedouri became a member of the National Assembly of Bahrain. She has worked on smoothening relationships with Israel by appearing publicly with political figures such as Yisrael Katz. In April 2017, she represented her country at the World Jewish Congress.
