In the midst of the Mellah, close to the Jewish cemetery and walking down narrow paths, we approached the Jewish synagogue. Well kept, and very nicely decorated. An impressive site. Worth visiting.

In the old Jewish district. Worth a visit to hear history of Jews in Morocco. Still active congregation with torah. Cemetery near by has graves of the great Grand Rabbis and tombs of those lost to the plague. Well preserved

The synagogue is small and lovely. We were even shown the bathing pool in the cellar used during a Jewish marriage ceremony and the tunnel where the bride was brought into the synagogue. Cabinets were opened for us to see the more hidden treasures. The man at the store on the alley corner has the key and it costs 10 dirhams a person. Worth it.

While I wouldn't add this to any "must see" list, I was glad I made the side trip here because it provides a different perspective of a city that is so rooted in islam. But here you are, in a Jewish synagogue with lots of history as well. Was a little difficult to actually find the place so be persistent.

Interesting place. You also get to see down to the mikveh. The keeper of the place likes for you to take pictures. You will also see the old Torah from the 17. century
