In 1947 there were 270,000 Jews living in Morocco. Jews were among the first settlers of the country. The Jewish Community rapidly became influential and commanded great respect. Most of the Moroccan Jews emigrated between 1947 - 1967, as a result of the rising conflict in the Middle East. Today there are only 2,500 Jews left in Morocco and we are sadly witnessing its complete disappearing. Today the Moroccan Jews of can be found in France, Israel, USA, Canada, Belgium and more - the remaining question is how can we re-establish the community again and revive its lost heritage.
Recent technological developments such as virtual reality and social networks allow us to create powerful documentation communities through the use of digital documentation. The ability to document and share the documentation at any tme and from any place is a game changer and this site offers a useful model to enhance these developments and preserve our heritage.
