Sukkot In Casablanca
Of all the synagogues in all the towns in all the world, Lens chose to highlight this one. Here?s looking at the Festival of the Tabernacles, as celebrated in the only Arab country to have a Jewish museum and two Jewish schools. Only 5,000 Jews live in Morocco, down from about 270,000 at the end of the 1940s. But a robust crowd, and not just the usual suspects, turned out in Casablanca to celebrate the festival last week. No doubt, next year they?ll be ready to play it again.
