The African Connection In Jerusalem

The African connection in Jerusalem

Jerusalem awaits the return of all Jews from a long exile. Our people have
been scattered across every part of the world. The establishment of the
Jewish State of Israel has seen a colorful influx of Jews, bringing
exciting cultural lifestyles with them.

There is a certain pride in displaying this multi-cultural facet that we
have inherited. The Jewish Jerusalem invites you to explore one such
colorful corner that exists within the Jewish capital of the world.

The Worldwide North Africa Jewish Heritage Center, is a unique center of
culture based in Jerusalem. It offers the general public with permanent
and temporary exhibitions showing the extraordinary history and heritage
of the Jews communities of North Africa. The crown of the center is an
audio-visual presentation, that include documents, movies, music,
bibliography, and pictures telling the thrilling narrative of the Jewish
communities in Morocco, Algeria and Tunis.

Among others, the center operates the Poetic Cantorial Institute, includes
a rich library with thousands of rare books and offers tours (by
appointment) that tell the story of the center since its establishment in
the 1854 by Rabbi David Ben Shimon (known also as the Tsuf Debash).
In the Mughrabi neighborhood of Jerusalem, known also as Mamilla, sprouts
an ancient building at the center of a stunning garden with authentic
Moroccan design.
This building is a living testimonial of the history of Jerusalem Mughrabi
neighborhood and residents of North African origin.
