The Jewish Moroccan community is the largest in the Arab world and although most Jews have emigrated to Israel over the last centuries, the traces that testify of a strong Jewish presence are to be found in almost every city in Morocco.
We find these historical testimonies in Hebrew inscriptions dating from the Roman period, in Andalucian influenced architecture brought to Morocco – in particular Fez – by the thousands of Jews that fled Spain after 1492, but also in the cities’ Mellahs (former Jewish quarters), synagogues and Jewish schools.
Another exception of Morocco: Rabbinical courts are recognized to be competent to deal with all matters affecting the personal status of Moroccan Jews.
For all interested in the Moroccan Jewish Heritage, we propose several tours (or tailor-made proposals) with a specialized guide, adapted to the requested duration, budget and interest.
