Four Monday sessions on Zoom – December 7, 14, 21, 28

2:00-3:15 PM EST

Pour yourself a cup of mint tea and join trip leader James Sokol on our virtual trips to this magical North African country, so different from most Arab-dominant countries. Morocco has its own unique, fascinating culture – a blend of indigenous Berber, Arabian, Sub-Saharan African and European (Christian & Jewish) influences. In this series on Morocco, join our wonderful local guide, Nabil, for visits around his diverse, vibrant 1,000-year-old city to discover wonders that await! 

 

Our virtual itinerary includes:

• Dec. 7 – Morocco Overview & Marrakech’s Medina

• Dec. 14 – The Gardens of Marrakech

• Dec. 12 – Moroccan-Jewish Life

• Dec. 28 – Koutoubia Mosque & Local Muslim Life

Join us for the full series or for single visits – whatever works best for you!

$15/single session, or $50 for the series
