Major Expansion of D’fina (Jewish Morocco) Exhibit
Diarna’s inaugural exhibit, D’fina, is uncovering more of the buried treasure (the meaning of “D’fina” in the Moroccan dialect) that is Judeo-Moroccan history and culture, with the release of draft materials on 62 sites. The ongoing exhibit expansion of D’fina to include sites across Morocco is being made possible with the renewed generosity of the Cahnman Foundation.
- Extensive documentation on Jewish sites in major cities and remote settings alike;
- Exclusive immersive panoramas, three-dimensional reconstructions, high-definition videos, site summaries, a cultural atlas, archival and contemporary photos; and
- Interactive virtual tours of sites led by Morocco’s only Jewish guide.
The majority of this new content stems from our most recent research expedition to central and northern Morocco, over the course of which more than 60 sites were documented in 11 days.

While the work of creating a new D’fina is ongoing, we click on the link above to view 2,300 photographs, two 3-D models, 38 site summary excerpts (in English and French), several videos, and a virtual tour of 26 panoramas — as an advance preview of what is to come. The entire exhibit is in the process of being renovated.
