Ettedgui Synagogue, Casablanca
Jewish numbers and resources in Morocco had dwindled significantly in the post-war period and the reactionary reign of King Hassan II did little to help interdenominational understanding. In 1999 King Hassan II assumed the throne. He proved to be a social reformer. He established a new constitution and instituted a Jewish Heritage program.
The King's program facilitated the reconstruction of the Ettegui Synagogue in 2016. His aim was to, "protect Moroccan Jews living in Morocco." The Ettegui Synagogue continues to function as a synagogue and as a symbol of Jewish history and culture in Morocco.
