While the Jews living in Morocco numbered about 2,500 in 2020, about 1.2 million Moroccan Jews lived in other parts of the world. To understand Jewish Morocco, it is essential to learn about Moroccan Jews in Israel, France, Canada, the United States and South America. How well did they integrate into the countries where they immigrated? How did their culture evolve? What are their feelings about Morocco, and how have they expressed them? What relationships have they maintained with Jews living in Morocco? This section of Visiting Jewish Morocco addresses these issues.
