Quick note on Asilah and studying Arabic

*In Asilah, in the non tourist suq, was a bookseller. One of the books he was selling was an Arabic-Hebrew dictionary. There were multiple copies.

We were discussing religion in class today (August 27) and somehow got on the topic of Jews. My teacher said that there were only a few Jews in Morocco and not many synagogues and thought there used to be a synagogue close to class. I didn’t tell him at the time but there is an active synagogue close to class and some 17 former synagogues in Rabat alone.
