  • Shabbat Shalom and thanks for all the gefilte fish

    By JewishJournal.com

    September 7, 2007 | 6:43 pm


    As the High Holy Days approach, many look forward to the traditional Ashkenazi ‘gefilte fish;’ others (like many in my family) not so much.

    It’s an acquired taste, to be sure, and the stories about Grandmas Fannie and/or Yetta keeping a carp in the bathtub in preparation for the...

  • Rabbi Pinto’s miracles

    By David Suissa

    November 30, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Growing up in Morocco, the word "miracle" was a familiar one. I remember how my parents, especially my mother, would bring up the great Moroccan mystics at all times of the day -- either to pray for a miracle, or to thank them for one.

    No miracle was too small. If a plate would...

  • Let My People Watch TV

    By Tom Tugend

    March 30, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    The story of the Exodus from Egypt makes for great cinema and stunning visual effects, as Cecil B. DeMille and Charlton Heston proved half a century ago.

    Now a new version of "The Ten Commandments," with its timeless themes of slavery and freedom, faith and doubt, adultery and...

  • Morocco Bombings Shock Emigres

    By Philip Carmel

    May 22, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    For most Parisian Jews with roots in Casablanca, the news that their home community had been targeted by Islamic terrorists came like a bolt from the blue.

    "Sure, it's happened in every other Arab country, in Egypt, even Tunisia, but we never thought it would happen in Morocco,"...

  • Tangier’s Casualty

    By Mike Seid

    May 16, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    In these past 19 months, I have sadly watched my faith in the effectiveness of liberal humanist values falter. They have not provided me an adequate framework to deal with the latest intifada, Sept. 11 and, above all, my year teaching in Morocco.

    Most of my background -- childhood...

  • The New Year’s Sephardic Seder

    By Julie G Fax

    September 13, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    It may not be as long and involved as the Passover seder, but for Raquel Bensimon, the ritualized dinner of Rosh Hashana is just as sweet and just as replete with memories.

    With her husband, son and daughter-in-law, three grandchildren and the extended family of Ashkenazi in-laws and...

  • Farewell to a Friend

    By Eric Silver

    July 29, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Israel had good reason to remember King Hassan II of Morocco as "a friend and a statesman," and not just because of his tireless efforts to build bridges between the Jewish state and its Arab neighbors.

    Secret cooperation between the Moroccan and Israeli intelligence services began in...

  • Discovering Morocco

    By  Orit Arfa

    May 6, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    If you think that with the tense climate in the Middle East no Muslim country would warmly welcome, let alone happily invite, Jewish visitors, then you haven't been to Morocco. Ever since Jews first arrived on Moroccan soil approximately 2,000 years ago, they have, for the most part,...
