This exhibition provides an overview demonstrating the presence and flourishing of Jews in the ancient and modern Kingdom of Morocco. The exhibition is presented through the implementation of artistically designed textual displays, documents, pull quotes, non-photo images (e.g. lithographs and engravings), historic photos, captions, replications of historic documents, and other visuals which demonstrate the life of the Jews living throughout this North African country. This exhibition, developed and curated by Shelomo Alfassa, has been funded in part by the New York Council for the Humanities.

The exhibition runs through December 31, 2012.
