“Slat Lkahal synagogue is situated in the Mellah district of Medina. It was built in 1850 with funds raised during funeral ceremonies by members of the community who would mingle with crowds at funerals . "Slat Lkahal" which means "Synagogue of the community" is the only synagogue in Essaouira not built with private funds. The Synagogue for the poor, the rich Jewish community resided in the Kasbah district, also served as a place to teach Hebrew to children in need. It was a gathering place for the waves of the Jewish community stopping in Essaouira while on their way to emigrate to Isreal or Europe. The Synagogue was completely abandoned for a time, today it is restored as part of the rehabilitation of the Mellah.”
