Morocco has long been an exciting and interested destination for world travelers. Its strategic location amidst impressive dynasties has allowed Morocco stand above the best of its Mediterannean neighbors. Morocco, a North African country situated in the Maghreb Desert, has a population of 33 million, and a long historical connection to Judaism. Despite the country’s long historical association with the religion, the population of Jewish residents has dwindled to just .02 percent of the total. When Morocco obtained its independence, there were about 280,000 Jewish citizens throughout the country, making it the largest community of Jewish residents within the Muslim world. Estimates of the current Jewish population in Morocco vary.
