Morocco is a country of Jews, Muslims and Christians. Jews first arrived in Morocco during pre-Christian times through coast of Morocco. The countryside Jewish and Berber tribes tilled the soil side by side together for two thousand years. This tour is a combination of tours to the major cities of Casablanca, Meknes, Fez, Rabat, Marrakesh, Essaouira. But before we go for a tour, let’s have a general idea of the Jewish Heritage. It will help us to study & appreciate how the Jewish effect on Morocco had been.This will help us to properly visualize the places of visit.

Since the Arab- Islamic colonization of Morocco from the 7th Century, the two faiths, Jews & Christians have coexisted peacefully in Morocco. Jews were favored for their business. They were silver smiths, jewelers and craftsman. After war & Morocco’s independence, most Moroccan Jews entered Israel seeking more prosperous life. However, ruling Alaouite dynasty supported Jewish minority a lot.

King Mohammed VI reiterated his commitment to religious freedom and spiritual diversity, and emphasized the importance of the three-thousand-year-old Jewish legacy in Morocco. Jews traditionally lived in Mellah, a part of the medina but now most have shifted to Ville Nouvelle. Still a majority reside in Casablanca.

Morocco’s Jewish Heritage sites consist of Synagogues, Cemeteries, Zaouias, Mellahs (preserved Jewish neighborhoods in the old medinas) and other sacred sites & are UNESCO Heritage sites or and/ or protected by the King and the Moroccan government.

Morocco views tourists with a secular feeling supporting all religious beliefs. Government is highly committed to develop Moroccan Tourism with Vision 2020 comprehensive tourism plan. Morocco has a grand history of sacred Jewish sites.

Morocco Judaism Museum is a special one in the Muslim World founded by Jewish community of Casablanca. It covers 700 meters-square. It has nice art paintings, photos, carpets, traditional household tools, Torah scrolls, Chanukah lamps and a small collection of Jewish chamsas of Moroccan Kingdom. The museum also showcases Moroccan caftans embroidered with gold; jewels ancient rugs and various objects of Jewish-Moroccan cultural heritage. Museum’s historical value is truly impressive, but its precious treasures lie within its walls neatly organized into a host of rich collections and exhibitions. Three of the exhibition rooms are dedicated to showcasing daily life artifacts used by Jewish populations in Morocco and the other two are exquisite reproductions of Moroccan synagogues.

Major Jewish sites are located in Marrakech & Fes. Tichka Mountain Pass Region has many Jewish shrines & cemeteries which are pilgrim places. Near Marrakech is a famous Zaouia of Telouet, once the seat of the Pacha Thami El Glaoui during the French protectorate. Moulay Ighi is such a place which has the most popular rabbis tomb visited equally by Muslims and Jews. Thousands of people would arrive here for the annual hiloula (pilgrimage).You may visit the place which has numerious Guest Houses for the visitors too who would like to spare a day or two. Similarly Timerzrite village in Atlas Mountain attracts lots of Jewish pilgrims during Sukkot to honor the Memory of Saint Rabbi David U Moshe who is a legendary. Many other tombs are also worth visiting. Each has got some history attached to it.

The largest Jewish community is in Casablanca with over 4,000 inhabitants. There are 17 Synagogues but not all are operational. Em Habanim Synagogue, a 17th Century Synagogue is located in the ancient Mellah since it was established in 1438. You will be impressed by the Fes Jewish Mellah’s white washed cemetery which is one of the most beautiful in the world. Slat al Fassayine is the oldest synagogue in Fes Rabbi Pinhas in Marrakech.It’s history goes back to 1538.It has brilliant white tombs.
