Celebrating coexistence and the Morocco-Israel Abraham Accords

SAZF CC Executive Director Chaya Singer met with the first Israeli Ambassador to Morocco, HE Dr David Govrin, in Rabat on June 12 2020. Several issues were discussed, including the continent of Africa, the African Union and Moroccan-Israeli relations, following the Abraham Accords 2020.

SAZF Cape Council Executive Director Chaya Singer participated in the Jewish Africa Conference on 13 June, and presented on South Africa’s Foreign Policy and its affect on SA Jewry. 

This is the second conference organised by the Mimouna Association in partnership with the American Sefardi Federation. Ms Singer presented at the first conference held three years ago in New York, and maintains warm relationships with both organisations. This collaboration exemplifies the Moroccan model of Jewish-Muslim coexistence, and the Moroccan government’s priority to preserve historical Jewish sites, acknowledging the significant Jewish contribution to Moroccan society. The conference included participation of Jewish Moroccan communal leadership and dignitaries from around Africa, and visits to religious sites in Rabat and Casablanca. Morocco normalised relations with Israel as part of the Abraham Accords in December 2020.
