The contribution of HM King Mohammed VI to a rehabilitation project in Cape Verde of the cemeteries of Moroccan-born Jews was highly praised at a ceremony, held this weekend in North Bethesda, Maryland.

During this meeting, hosted by the Sephardic synagogue Magen David, with the support of the embassies of the Kingdom of Morocco and Cape Verde, participants paid a heartfelt tribute to HM the King for his contribution to the restoration and preservation of the Jewish heritage in Morocco and abroad.

"We are very grateful to HM King Mohammed VI," told MAP president of the NGO "Cape Verde Jewish Heritage Project (CVJFP), Carol Castiel.

"Without this contribution in 2011, this project would never have been possible," she stressed, highlighting the leadership of HM the King and his actions to honor the Moroccan Jewish heritage in Cape Verde.

Castiel also recalled that in June 2015, a Jews delegation from Cape Verde made a trip to the country of their ancestors, Morocco, on the initiative of the ministry of Moroccans living abroad and Migration Affairs, expressing admiration for the warm welcome they received.
