Information and Review of the Jewish Heritage Center Of North Africa In Jerusalem

Founded in 1854 in the city of Jerusalem, the Organization of Jewish Communities of North Africa was a crown jewel and historical debt for the founding of the North African Jewish Heritage Center in a building built by the Western Jewish Communities Committee in the 19th century under the leadership of Rabbi David Ben Shimon.

The uniqueness of the Center is reflected by the combination of the ancient construction that characterized 19th-century Jerusalem, and Andalusian design that influenced the countries of North Africa, and, the connection between East and West and new and old. In the courtyard of the Center, an Andalusian garden was built and has unique mosaic works throughout.

The North African Jewish World Heritage Center is the only cultural center for North African Jewry, and its activities are central and vital to public figures. Among the activities of the Center are the Institute of Cantors and Psalms, temporary exhibitions and fixed exhibitions that present the history and heritage of North African Jewry, a database of films, music, bibliography and pictures that tell the story of North African Jews and their heritage, a unique library, and various conferences and seminars.
