MOROCCAN JEWS OF MOGADOR

This documentary was filmed in the Jewish quarters of the Medina of Essaouira formerly known as Mogador. In the 18th century, even before and to a time period after that, this portion of the fortified city, was home to a beautiful striving Israelite community.

Who were the Jews of the Medina in Mogador? Who were favoured and respected by some of the Sultan’s of the past, including Mohammed Ben Abdallah al-Khatib, the grandchild of the famous black Sultan, known as the warrior King, Moulay Ismail ibn Sharif. The answer to the identity of the Jews who once lived in the Medina is found in a restored synagogue, truth cannot be hidden.
