Morocco: Jewish cemeteries and more

I found an interesting blog - Jewish Morocco - by CB Silver, which describes travels in Morocco and Jewish interactions.

Here is a description of the Jewish cemetery at Igil Noro.

Here is a description of the grave of the Hacham of Tioute, in the village as far from Taroudant as is Arazan.

Here is the writer's description of the Jewish cemetery in the area of the Akka oasis near the Algerian border. On an ancient caravan route, it had an ancient Jewish settlement. The city is Akka and the area includes some seven villages. This is the description of the visit to the Jewish cemetery at Zawiya village.

The visit to Taroudant is here.

Do read the other blog postings about other towns, such as this one mentioning a project on mapping the Marrakech Jewish cemetery.
