Belgium Jewish Museum exhibition shows Moroccan Jewish and Muslim women common culture

The Jewish Museum of Belgium, located in Brussels, is currently showing the exhibition ‘Moroccan Women – Between Ethics and Aesthetics’ with focus on dresses and jewelry used in the past by both Jewish and Muslim women in Morocco.

The exhibition can be described as a narrative journey through a wide range of objects from the 16th century to the present: traditional and religious objects, clothing, ornaments, talismans and jewelry, archival documents, photographs, drawings and orientalist paintings.

“It shows the fascination and interest in knowing more about a beautiful multicultural phenomenon which was shared by Jews and Muslims alike in Morocco. This culture cannot be forgotten by people with a Moroccan background living in Brussels and elsewhere” said the curator of the exhibition Paul Dahan.
