The meeting began with a discussion on the extensive relationship between the Jewish Moroccan communities, as well as their rich history and contemporary contribution of Jewish Morocco. The Moroccan Jewish community is a living bridge between our countries and societies.
In the future we look forward to coordinating an interfaith, co-existence and tolerance forum to be hosted annually, first in the city of Kiryat Ono. The forum will focus on religious tolerance.
