Morocco Jewish Tour

The history of the Jewish people in Morocco is one of respect and admiration. Since 1492 when three million European Muslims and Jews emigrated to Morocco from Spain, they have lived alongside Arabs and Berbers for centuries, while retaining their traditions, customs and culture. Morocco currently boasts 700,000 Jews of Moroccan origin in Israel, and 30,000 still living in Morocco. This has created strong ties between Israel and Morocco, helping Morocco attain a unique place in Arab-Israeli relations as Israeli leaders have always been welcomed on official visits. It is of little surprise then that so many Jewish tourists want to relive their history with Morocco Jewish heritage tours. If you are coming to Morocco in search of Jewish heritage history, then you will not be disappointed with the Morocco Jewish heritage tours in Morocco, which come as a customized travel package to Morocco through several agencies specializing in Morocco travel, most especially Sahara Soul Travel.
