Istanbul - Morocco was once home to a very large community of 250,000 Jews, the largest in the Arab world. Moreover, they had been living there for the past 2,000 years: In other words, together with the Muslim Moroccans, they were an inseparable part of Morocco, its culture, history and civilization and helped build and shape it to make it what it is today. For centuries, these two communities existed side by side in harmony and friendship. They lived in similar houses, led similar social lives, attended the same schools, worked at the same jobs and spent great time together as friends.
