Jewish cult

Some Jewish populations has lived in the presaharic valleys for over twenty centuries and has kept its religion through the years, in spite of the conversion to Islam of the other inhabitants.

For the Jewish cult, there was a synagogue and a Hebrew cemetery in every village where the Hebrews had their own neighbourhood. There, they did some specific activities: trade, money lending, silverwork and other kinds of handicraft.

Almost all of the Jewish population immigrated to Israel in 1967 as a consequence of the Six Days war.
