‘Bab Mellah: the Jewish Quarter’ – previously known as ‘Memories of Fez’ – is a cultural project dedicated to revive the history and heritage of Moroccan Judaism. The gate, walls, streets, humble shops, public ovens, jewellery shops, synagogues and houses of the Mellah still stand witness to what was once a vibrant Jewish quarter. This cultural project is an attempt to take us back and give a glimpse of the stories of the Jewish people of Fes. This journey allows us to live and feel the experience of the past.
