To begin, I want to say the thing some people will hate to admit: Moroccans date.Whether religiously they or others believe it is right or wrong, it exists in Morocco just like anywhere else in the world.More recently, the Jewish community of Fez has also struggled for its preservation, and successfully nominated the building to the 1996 World Monuments Watch of the World Monuments Fund.According to the Fund, the plaster was peeling, the roofs were collapsing, the waterlogged beams were rotting, and windows were broken and missing.On the flip side, dating in the major cities is easier to nod into the seen and “not see .” Living in Marrakech, I was able to meet and befriend 20-something year old Moroccans, both guys and girls who dated other Moroccans or foreigners. Personally I know some people whose families are more comfortable with their young adult children bringing their “best friend” home.
Actually we didn’t openly express to the family we were a couple until we had a group discussion about us deciding to file a fiancé visa in other to move forward with our future.
The synagogue was once only one of several inside the walls of Fes, and not the most elaborate.
It is entered through a simple doorway indistinguishable from the doors of nearby houses. The room is lit by small windows high in the walls.
Opposite the Torah Ark is a raised alcove, separated from the main prayer space by a wooden screen elaborately carved with a series of arches.
It was intended as a seating area for the congregations more distinguished members.
