Asjen Shrine Synagogue
Morocco

Located a few kilometers north of the spiritual center of Ouezzane and on the edge of the Bled es-Siba, or ungoverned area, Asjen’s sparse population and idyllic scenery provide a fitting setting for the unassuming and tranquil, yet deeply important shrine of Rabbi Amram Ben Diwan. Born in the early 18th century in Hebron, the rabbi travelled to the city of Ouezzane as an emissary from the Jewish community in Jerusalem. He proved to be a wise scholar and was noted for his miraculous healing powers, according to Issachar Ben-Ami’s Saint Veneration among the Jews of Morocco. The shrine itself has been claimed to provide cures. In one anecdote, Ben-Ami recounts how a Christian woman with fits of insanity was healed after spending one week near the shrine.

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
