Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Ira Forman will travel May 17-23 to Rabat, Casablanca, and Marrakesh to highlight best practices for protecting religious pluralism.
Morocco has long recognized the contributions of religious minorities, including its Jewish community, as an important part of its heritage. To that end, Special Envoy Forman will meet with government officials, Jewish and other religious leaders, and students and academics to gain a broader understanding of the concerns of the Moroccan Jewish community and discuss best practices in educating about and combating anti-Semitism.
