The synagogue and the cemetary are stunning and sobering reminders of the rich history of the jews in morocco in general, and Marrakech in particular. If you get to the synagogue for shabbat services (Friday nightfall, Saturday morning) you get an extra treat.

We stayed in the Mellah and visited the synagogue and the Jewish cemetery and it was interesting to see the cemetery, especially the older graves. Learning about the Jewish experience in a predominately Islamic country was great!
