Essaouira’s Mellah includes more than 10 percent of the city, but Jews constituted nearly 40 percent of the population within the late 1880’s. Jewish personalities about the gates towards the Mellah display their education to which Jews were approved to the stage that a few of the richer Jews didn’t actually reside in the Mellah, in Essaouira. Commemorative plaques show the structures by which synagogues were found.
