Jewish Voice – 2/5/21

As long as COVID-19 infection rates in Israel do not rise, a Moroccan delegation will visit Israel by the end of February and an Israeli one will visit the North African nation, according to The Jerusalem Post. This was agreed upon during a conversation last week between Israel’s National Security Advisor Meir Ben-Shabbat and Morocco’s Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita. Ben-Shabbat, who was born to Moroccan-Jewish immigrants, will lead the Israeli delegation.

The two officials agreed to create several work groups to discuss mutual cooperation concerning water, energy, investments and tourism. Because of the pandemic, the work groups will meet online for now.
