Early photographs of Moroccan Jewish families, taken in the early 20th century by German explorer and photographer Hermann Burchardt , are now held at the Ethnological Museum of Berlin.
The status of Moroccan Jews was not substantially improved by the establishment in of a French protectorate over much of the country. In , thousands of rebelling Moroccan soldiers entered and pillaged the Mellah Jewish quarter of Fez. More than 50 Jews were killed and hundreds of homes and shops were destroyed or damaged. The events were known as the " Tritel.
By the s increasing numbers of Moroccan Muslims began to graduate from schools taught in French and to demand access to jobs in the colonial administration and in French-owned businesses that had been filled by French citizens and by Moroccan Jews who, as a community, had been willing to send significant numbers of children to schools taught in French a generation or two earlier than Moroccan Muslims. In , the Nazi-controlled Vichy government issued antisemitic decrees excluding Jews from public functions.
Sultan Mohammed V refused to apply these racist laws and, as a sign of defiance, insisted on inviting all the rabbis of Morocco to the throne celebrations. In , approximately , Jews lived in Morocco. Around 2, live there now, mostly in Casablanca , but also in Fes and other main cities. In June , soon after Israel was established and in the midst of the first Arab-Israeli war, riots against Jews broke out in Oujda and Djerada , and in Alcazarquivir killing 44 Jews.
In , 18, Jews left the country for Israel. After this, Jewish emigration continued to Israel and elsewhere , but slowed to a few thousand a year. Through the early s, Zionist organizations encouraged emigration, particularly in the poorer south of the country, seeing Moroccan Jews as a valuable source of labor for the Jewish State. From on many Jews left Fes. Most emigrated to Israel while others went to France and Canada.
In , Morocco attained independence. Jews occupied several political positions, including three Members of the Parliament of Morocco and a Minister of Posts and Telegraphs. However, emigration to Israel jumped from 8, in to 24, in , increasing further in Beginning in , emigration to Israel was prohibited until , although it continued illegally until it was officially resumed. When Mohammed V died, Jews joined Muslims in a national day of mourning. But over the next three years, more than 80, Moroccan Jews immigrated to Israel.
By , only 60, Jews remained in Morocco. By , its Jewish population was down to 35,; however, most of this new wave of emigration went to Europe and North America rather than Israel. France for a time was a destination particularly for Moroccan Jews with European educations, who had economic opportunities there; one study of Moroccan Jewish brothers, one of whom settled in France and the other in Israel, showed that 28 percent of the brothers who settled in France became managers, businessmen or professionals compared to 13 percent of their Israeli brothers and only 4 percent unskilled workers compared to over a third of their Israeli brothers.
Despite their current small numbers, Jews continue to play a notable role in Morocco. They are well represented in business and even a small number in politics and culture. Jewish schools and synagogues receive government subsidies. However, Jews were targeted in the Casablanca bombings of May In Marrakech had an aging population of about Jews, most over the age of 60, while Casablanca had between 3, and 4, Jews. A figure says there are about 2, Jews still living in Morocco. In , it was revealed that there is a rapidly growing trend of Moroccan-Jewish families sending their sons to study at the Jerusalem College of Technology in Israel.
Most of these students opt to take up Israeli citizenship and settle in Israel after graduating. However, most of these are not of Moroccan descent. Pair of anklets, silver molded, city style.
