Discover the Jewish Heritage of Morocco 2023

October 15 - 25, 2023

A journey into our Past...

Historically, Morocco has strived to be a place of acceptance. Several different cultures and religions have inhabited its cities and towns throughout the centuries. Today, the majority of its population is Muslim, but it is not hard to find a wide array of remnants of the country’s Jewish heritage throughout its many cities. Jews first arrived at Morocco as early as 70 CE. A second wave of migration takes place as the result of the expulsion from the Iberian Peninsula in 1492. These Jews created mellahs (Jewish Quarters), that were often found in a corner of the city fortified by Kasbah walls for protection. These mellahs became a city within a city for the Jews with their own synagogues, fountains, and markets lining narrow streets and alleyways.
