Mimouna Club award for HAF and the Jewish community of Marrakech-Essaouira

HAF receives award at the Mimouna Club MoroccoThe High Atlas Foundation was greatly honored on February 26th when we received a joint award, together with the Jewish community of Marrakech-Essaouira, from the Mimouna Club, at a reception held in Casablanca.

This recognition is for the special partnership that exists between HAF and the Jewish community of Marrakech-Essaouira, created to advance human development by planting millions of trees in order to help end rural poverty. It is hoped to extend both the link and the project to other Jewish communities throughout Morocco in the future.

The President of the Jewish community of Marrakech-Essaouira, Mr Jacky Kadoch, and HAF President Dr Yossef Ben-Meir both addressed the 200 or so guests including national leaders, speaking of the opportunities - for rural families and for positive cross-cultural interaction - that have been brought about as a result of this collaboration.

HAF receives award at the Mimouna Club MoroccoThe Mimouna Club builds knowledge and celebrates Moroccan Jewish culture in the context of the country’s diverse heritage. Now a national association, it was founded in 2007 as a student club at Al Akhawayn University by Elmehdi Boudra who is, additionally, a HAF Board member.
