TAGADIRT: Print

A village in southeastern Morocco, close to the Algerian border, to the north of Akka.

Located in the province of Tata, Tagadirt has no Jewish population. The 2 cemeteries, 2 tombs and melah section of town are very old, but since the Jews left for Israel no one cares for them. In the last seven years, they have come under great disrepair. One of the tombs had inch thick marble, now smashed and scraped bare. The bodies, however, remain. [Source: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

His email time is VERY limited as he lives in a small town without Internet. As a Peace Corps volunteer nearby, he works with an association that would like to help in the repair and upkeep of these sites, but are searching for organizations to help.  He would be happy to act as a point of contact.
