9780253222251: Jewish Culture and Society in North Africa (Indiana Series in Sephardi and Mizrahi Studies)

With only a small remnant of Jews still living in the Maghrib at the beginning of the 21st century, the vast majority of today's inhabitants of North Africa have never met a Jew. Yet as this volume reveals, Jews were an integral part of the North African landscape from antiquity. Scholars from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Israel, and the United States shed new light on Jewish life and Muslim-Jewish relations in North Africa through the lenses of history, anthropology, language, and literature. The history and life stories told in this book illuminate the close cultural affinities and poignant relationships between Muslims and Jews, and the uneasy coexistence that both united and divided them throughout the history of the Maghrib.

Review:

Opening new avenues for research on the Jews of the Maghrib, this volume is an important contribution to both Jewish studies and Maghrib studies. . . . [It] raises a whole range of questions about how we might rethink modern Jewish history. (Matthias Lehmann author of Ladino Rabbinic Literature and Ottoman Sephardic Culture)
