Mr Balga brought to light the migratory movement of the Moroccan Jews in the history of Moroccan migration, as well as the conditions of arrival and settlement of these immigrants in Latin America. He highlighted their commitment to the Moroccan identity and wish to preserve relations with their country of origin. A bond reflected in the preservation of religious rituals, customs and traditions. As well as pilgrimage visits to cemeteries of Jewish saints, which magnifies the particularity of Morocco as a unique model of coexistence, cohabitation and dialogue, under the protection of kings and sultans of Morocco.
