South of Maarif in the suburb of Oasis is this museum housed beautiful villa surrounded by lush gardens. It's the only Jewish museum in the Islamic world. It relates the history of the once-thriving Jewish community (two thirds of whom live in Casablanca) and its influence on modern Moroccan society, with more than 1500 historical artefacts including documents, traditional clothing, ceremonial items and a vast collection of photographs. Oasis is a 15-minute taxi ride (Dh30) from the city centre.
