A three-day academic and cultural conference

The American Sephardi Federation’s Institute of Jewish Experience in partnership with Association Mimouna present a three-day scholarly and cultural conference dedicated to exploring the uncommon commonalities shared by Moroccan Jews and Muslims. The Morocco Conference is bringing together 40 of the world’s leading academics and artists to explore the historical, spiritual, and cultural expressions of Morocco’s culture of coexistence. Scholars, dignitaries, and communal leaders will convene to share research, knowledge, and experiences to foster enhanced understanding and engagement with Morocco’s tradition of tolerance and interconnectedness as a model for other Muslim nations and, moreover, the entire world.

“I really enjoyed the Yemenite Conference that was in 2018, which connected me to the culture...to know a lot and to get exposed more, which I think is a gift for family, for friends, for everyone... we are looking forward to... the Moroccan [Conference] 2019”

~Avishai
“Thank you very much to those who organize this gathering and make an extraordinary effort to its success. Keep in touch and again thank you very much indeed.”

~Hamid
A wholehearted thank you for a one-of-a-kind conference, diverse and educational lecture topics, the warm acquaintance with the various lecturers and a wonderful environment. 👍😘

~Bracha
"From all my heart thank you to all for this wonderful experience in terms of enriching new knowledge as well as human warmth! Am already looking forward to the next encounter. Sh'yishar koach. Brachot chamot."

~ Ester
"I think that Yemenites are the warmest and most talented people going. I loved the dancing and the over the top choir. I learned much and made many new friends I will be in touch with. I thank you so much for the invitation to participate and hope that you can succeed in bringing peace in the future."  

~Marjorie
This was definitely an extraordinary event: a fabric of researchers, collectors, artists and innovators - each one of whom has given and continues to give his part to the research and preservation of the tradition of Yemenite Jewry and its continuity. This conference had a unique concept, and I mainly was impressed that each session (at least those I participated in), the audience didn’t rush, didn’t want it to end - wanted to hear and absorb more and more... I am greatly pained that I couldn’t hear more, parallel sessions forced me to choose.
