Aben Danan Synagogue in The “Mellah” of Fes/Fez, Morocco
http://www.TravelsWithSheila.com An intensive day of sightseeing began with a gate built in 1968 and dedicated to the late King Hassan II before walking into the old Jewish Quarter of Fes/Fez. This area, known as the "Mellah" in Morocco, was located next to the Royal Palace for protection. The Aben Danan Synagogue was built in the mid-17th century and recently restored. A typical Sephardic-style synagogue that included a mikvah, a ritual bath in Judaism, that still fills with rainwater.
