The city of Fez, in Morocco, was established toward the end of the 9th century CE and there is evidence that a Jewish community was in existence there soon after its founding. This community has enjoyed an almost unbroken connection with the city to the present day. Fez served as a spiritual center for the Jews of Morocco and North Africa, and as the cradle of the science of Hebrew language in the Middle Ages.
Many sages, who made their mark on Jewish heritage, grew up and studied in Fez: Rabbi Yehuda Hayuj, the linguist; Rabbi Yitzhak Alfasi, the halachist; and the Rambam (Maimonides), halachist and Jewish philosopher.
The influence of the sages of Fez reached Europe and countries of the east, including Eretz Israel and Jerusalem.
