Relations entres juifs et berberes

Extrait de 'JEWISH EXISTENCE IN A BERBER ENVIRONMENT' - Moshe Shokeid - 1982

'...My own investigation into the particular situation of Atlas Mountains Jews revealed that most of the writers who explored Jewish life under Berber rule in recent generations comment on the Jews’ relative safety, emphasizing the cordial relationships with their neighbors. Some of these writers refer to symbiotic relationships between Jews and Berbers.
