Jewish Cemetery in Tangier


Excellent new resource on Jewish cemetery in Tangier. The cemetery is being mapped and a fund has been set up to help with restoration. Here's the English translation to the French site. I will post more on the Jewish community of Tangier shortly and how best to access cemetery.

I have visited this cemetery when one of our relative was buried and they offered a great service to us.

I tried to see the cemetery and, although a guy at the gate let me in, there was a large woman with her 2 children, cat, dog and laundry in there, and she screamed her head off for me to get out.

It was a Monday morning at 11.

I don't know who pays for the upkeep of the place, but quite honestly, the woman who lives there thinks it's her back yard.

It was a shame. My heritage is Jewish Berber. I'm fairly certain I have relatives buried in there.
