Oh the Places you Can go: Morocco

Uncovering Jewish Morocco

Lisa Niver Rajna will share travel tips for and information about the Jewish side of Morocco and Marrakech tours.

By Amy Sommer  |  March 06, 2011

We’ve heard so much about North African turmoil of late that it is easy to forget that this part of the world is the cradle of history for most of our planet’s inhabitants and that despite the political unrest, these are great travel destinations.

Lisa Niver Ranja will talk about one such trip, “Uncovering Jewish Morocco”, at Stephen S. Wise Temple’s Udko Annex on March 24 7pm-8:30pm.

The presentation will explore Jewish roots and how the Jews of the region people followed in the footsteps of Maimonides from Spain through Morocco and finally to Israel.

The presentation will include photography of the Marrakech synagogue and the Mellah (Jewish Quarter) in Fes el-Jdid with its extensive Jewish Cemetery and other highlights from Niver Ranja’s own three-week journey in the country. Complimentary maps and other enticements to be us

ed on a future trip of yours will be given out.

As Niver Ranja says, “travel stories help us find a unique side of ourselves and our ancestors, through travel we are brought together to discover the common bond of humanity that ties us despite the vast lands and time that separate us”.

So take the first step and attend the March 24th lecture — who knows, you might like it.
