    A London and Tel-Aviv-based research and policy institute that analyzes tolerance in education around the world issues a report on growing themes of acceptance toward Jews in Morocco’s education system.

    The Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se) reviewed student textbooks over the past decade, finding particular reforms since 2021, with the Jewish community of Morocco “frequently and affectionately represented,” and students told Jews are “an inseparable part” of the country.

    “Textbooks describe Jewish history, culture, and contributions to Moroccan society… The portrayal of Jewish people is sympathetic, and antisemitic stereotypes are avoided or subverted with positive traits like generosity, and loyalty to Morocco.”
