National JCC Adult & Senior Alliance Cultural Arts Trips – Spring 2023

Cultural Arts Trips: Magical Morocco

Sept 3-20 – SOLD OUT
March 11-28, 2023 – Registration closes October 15

From seaside to mountain-top to desert, from historical sites to modern wonders, from natural to man-made beauty, with a rich history of Berbers, Arabs, Christians & Jews. Morocco has it all! 

Travel to this marvelous, 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 influences. 

Explore bustling imperial cities (Fes, Meknes & Marrakech). Experience ocean-side towns (Tangier, Essaouira). Stay in a charming hillside retreat (Chefchaouen) and in the mountain region (Dades). Camp (if you like) in among the dunes at the edge of the Sahara Desert (Merzouga). Enjoy “off the tourist track” locals (Taroudant). Even stop in a nomadic home for a cup of tea. 

Don’t miss this “once-in-a-lifetime” trip made possible by our organization being a part of the National JCC Adult & Senior Alliance.  For a trip overview, visit HERE.  For details & paperwork, email James at jsokol@marinjcc.org
