The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


André Azoulay

Senior royal adviser

When King Mohammed VI of Morocco traveled to the coastal city of Essaouira to dedicate the historic Jewish Bayt Dakira (House of Memory) in January 2020, among the dignitaries greeting the king was the veteran royal adviser, André Azoulay. The project in Essaouira, once home to a large Jewish community, was the brainchild of Azoluay, and contains a small synagogue, a museum, and a research center. At the dedication ceremony, Azoulay presented the king with both a Torah and a Koran. King Mohammed’s presence was a symbol of “our secular and millenary Morocco that has been able to protect the very great diversity, which is the central wealth of our country,” Azoulay remarked.
