Jewish tours of Morocco

Morocco’s mindset towards its Jewish society – which has lived in the nation for more than 3000 years – has enabled the building of positive ties with Israel, where about 20% of Jews are of Moroccan ancestry.

Jews first reached Morocco during the pre-Christian era, joining the Phoenicians on their trade expeditions across the vast coastal areas of the country.

Morocco’s chronology of Jewish and the combination of Jews with the Amazigh people and Arabs are key factors in why the Kingdom of Morocco is secure for Jewish visitors.

André Azoulay is a Jewish Moroccan national and the sole royal advisor still in the post who has served both King Hassan II and his son King Mohammed VI.

Morocco’s Jewish sites are safeguarded by the King and the Moroccan government. Jewish Heritage sites in Morocco consist of several synagogues spread in many different cities, zaouias and sepulchers, cemeteries, and mellah neighborhoods. South Morocco has many interesting sites, diversely spread in cities such as Ksar Ait Benhaddou, Ouarzazate, Tofoultoute, and Kalaat M’Gouna. Even Erfoud in the Sahara desert has the important Shrine of Rabbi Shmuel Abu Hatziera that can be easily visited. The Jewish Heritage of Erfoud and Rissani are relevant to the Jewish community.

The Jewish neighborhoods in the Moroccan cities are called mellahs. Jews in Morocco were considered ”dhimmis”’ under Muslim regulation, indicating that they were a protected religious minority, that were differentiated from the Muslim majority.
