The history of Jews in Morocco dates back almost as far as the beginning of the Common Era. The community was close to 300,000 people in 1940 and has dropped to less than 3,000 today. This talk will sweep through the highlights and trials of Moroccan Jewish history, and provide insight into the experience of Jews in the Islamic world. The session will conclude with an intimate portrait of the remaining Jews in the city of Fes.
