Jewish Museum of Casablanca

Went to the Jewish Museum yesterday to try and meet with one of the directors. Took a little while to find it but made it 10 minutes before closing. Wouldn’t let me in but I persuaded (a group of gap year students pulled up right after me with 10 paying customers) to let me in. It is a very lovely space with reconstructed synagogues, photos, jewelry, costumes, and religious items. Unfortunately the directors weren’t there but I was still happy to see the museum. I hope to meet with them soon.
