Morocco's shrines to famous rabbis

Rabbi David Kadoch, an eminent Moroccan rabbi

The period of prayer, introspection and  atonement leading up to Rosh Hashana, which begins tonight, is called Selichot (forgiveness). Here is a clip of a Selichot chant according to the Moroccan tradition. The video is interesting as it criss-crosses the country showing famous rabbis' shrines in Morocco. These are visited by Muslims as well as Jews.
