Details of the book
The Mellah Society: Jewish Community Life in Sherifian Morocco

"The Mellah Society" is a compact yet detailed and fascinating account of Jewish life in precolonial Morocco, based on the voluminous but rarely studied writings of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Judeo-Moroccan sages.

Originally published in Israel in 1983, now translated and expanded by its author, "The Mellah Society" draws upon Middle Eastern and Jewish history, textual Judaic studies, and social anthropology to make a
