Moroccan Jews were moved to Erfoud from some surrounding villages (Ouled Ali and Jrana). According to a report written at “La Voix des Communautés” in 1950, there were 8 synagogues in the city. The majority were located near the river, where the majority of the members of the Jewish community lived. Near the city center, the DAKIRA staff visited a ruined synagogue, Slat Nizri.
