The Two Millenia Story of Moroccan Jewry

Thursday, February 2 | 3:00pm Est Streaming Live On Zoom

With Moroccan Iew: Yona Abbedour

Morocco is home to one of the oldest Jewish communities in the Diaspora. This two-millennia Judeo-Moroccan heritage is the result of an intersection between various civilizations and
traditions including Amazigh (commonly known as Berber), Andalusian, and Arab influences among others.

In this talk, we will explore the past and present story of Moroccan Jewry by addressing some central questions related to why the Jews left or stayed in Morocco, what is Jewish life like in Morocco today, and what is the future of Moroccan Jews in this Muslim-majority country.
