Teaching Coexistence in Casablanca

There are very few schools in the Middle East where Jews and Arabs study together. Most of them are in Israel.

But there’s also one where you’d never expect it—Morocco. A country that’s 99% Muslim, where the Jewish community numbers just 3,000. With the support of Federation partner the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, students at the Maimonides Schools in Casablanca are carrying on an incredible legacy of coexistence and understanding.
