About this title


The Alliance Israélite Universelle―an international organization representing a community of over 240,000 Jews―was founded in France in 1860. Its goal was to achieve the intellectual regeneration and social and political elevation of the Jewish people. This book examines the impact of the AIU on Moroccan Jewry. It answers such questions as: How did the AIU establish itself in Morocco’s communities? How did it go on to become a power not to be underestimated by either the Moroccan government or the Europeans? And more importantly, how did the AIU improve the conditions of the Jews in Morocco, creating an important French-speaking urban elite? Also discussed are such topics as Zionism and Jewish-Muslim relations in Morocco.

About the Author:

Michael M. Laskier is Lecturer and Researcher on the Jews of the Muslim countries and on Jewish-Muslim relations at Tel-Aviv University’s Jewish History Department and the Institute of Diaspora Studies.
