We felt a different Marrakech inside the Jewish district. My family and I visited the sinagogue and also the jewish cemetery.

The Mellah is a relatively small area with relatively little to see. There is a decent little market area that you can check out. IT takes about 10 minutes to walk through the whole neighborhood and it is very close to other sites so there is not reason to not check it out if you're in the area.

I visited the one functioning synagogue and met its historian Chedva and her young daughter (from London originally so no language problems). I also went to part of the Saturday morning service which was interesting and different. The building itself is 500 years old, not spectacular but offering an insight into a virtually vanished Jewish community in Marrakech.
