The story of 2000 years of Jewish life in Morocco is one of the great untold stories of Jewish history. But this is not merely a lesson in events of the past- here we have seeds of change for the relationship between Judaism and Islam, for the Jewish people and Muslims worldwide and for the violence-prone tension between the West and the Muslim world. Why is it that American Jewish education completely ignores the story of the Jews of Morocco? Is it an accident? An intention? This session will introduce you to amazing events and documents and certainly tempt you to come to Limmud Morocco in June!

Peter's participation in LimmudFest NY was made possible with generous support from The Covenant Foundation.
