Jews under Moroccan Skies
Two Thousand Years of Jewish Life
Raphael David Elmaleh and George Ricketts
Jews under Moroccan Skies gives an overview of 2,000 years of Moroccan Jewish history and culture. It is written for the general reader interested in Sephardic life or the informed traveler who is going to Morocco.
The authors, Raphael David Elmaleh and George Ricketts, both live in Casablanca and have traveled extensively throughout Morocco to study Jewish communities.
Serge Berdugo (Secretary-General of the Council of Moroccan Jews and President of the World Assembly of Moroccan Jewry) says that this book, shows the heritage of tolerance and coexistence between jews and Muslims...and delivers a message of hope in a world of hatred and exclusion.
Peter Geffen (Founder of KIVUNIM and The Abraham Joshua Heschel School in New York) says,
No chapter in the long history of the Jewish people has more power and more relevance to our contemporary world than Moroccan Jewry. And it is the least known, by far! This wonderful book will draw you into its mystery, captivating and capturing your imagination. If you don't want to be tempted to travel, don't read this book. You will never be satisfied until you see it with your own eyes accompanied by the unparalleled teacher and guide, Raphael David Elmaleh! People all of the world have been waiting for Raphy to put his words down on paper. This magnificent book is the result. It is a gem!
