Our club of 4 couples meets every other month. The mystery is most of us don’t know what we will do. This time, the husbands planned the adventure. We learned about the Jews of Morocco. As Jews, we loved learning about a place that we did not know had aJewish history. Learning about how they first got there and lived among the Berber people was a surprise. The group talked about what they learned that surprised them ( all). And put Morocco on the list of where they wanted to go.
I learned so much from this course and can’t wait to go to visit Jewish Morocco. Dr. Gottreich is an interesting and compelling speaker with deep experience and knowledge. I’m looking forward to learning with her again.

Very impressive knowledge and warm, smooth presentation
Excellent talk on the history and ethnography of Jewish morocco. I have seen this talk before, and it was a little different and has improved, and more mention of my particular interests in the Jewish Sufi saints and their veneration. Many other aspects of life and culture, including music, were brought in. A broadly-based presentation. Excellent.
