Essaouira Alliance Israélite Universelle

The original school closed in 1869 after only three troubled years of existence, including a cholera outbreak in its second year that stopped students from attending. Opposition by traditional rabbis, indifference on the part of Jewish notables, as well as a period of famine and epidemics, conspired to cause the 2nd schools reopening, in 1875, to falter. 13 years later, however, a 3rd attempt was made and succeeded. Today, while no longer an Alliance school, the building remains the same, with its open courtyard, narrow staircases, and rooftop view of the Atlantic ocean.
