Looking to go to Morroco for sukkot. Has anyone been there on Sukkot that could advise me on the situation there?  Looking to go with a few single friends and would love to be hosted at chabad for the meals. Has anyone been there over the holidays that can give me a few tips?

There are several Sukkot programs in Morocco this year. I believe that they are reasonably priced. Especially if you wait it out a bit.

Are you serious ???
Last year, in the Shuk in Fez, I heard someone calling after me: "Yahud" I can't forget the hatred
in the eyes of a shop owner in the Shuk in Fez, when he realized we were not interested in buying
a carpet from him, how he cursed us...
Just to think of those narrow alleyes in Fez, where you can easily "disappear"and nobody will notice.
People are friendly to the Jews in Morocco, but give a glimpse into its history, and you'll realize how the
Jews have suffered in Morocco throughout history.  Before the current war in Israel it was safe but now ?!?

I went before the war and I felt zero insecurity whatsoever. Of course the situation is different than it was two years ago unfortunately, but after my amazing experience I find it hard to say that you canít go because of antisemitism, I would love to hear feedback from someone who went since October 7th because it is an Arabic country after all. We were in Marrakech and Casablanca, so canít speak of experience in Fez like the @kosherjid  did above, but we really enjoyed Morocco- highly recommended!

I was in Marocco twice in 2023 would love to go again. It is unique. It was secure, so long as this King is the ruler. I wonder what his son is like. Marrakesh, Essauiora didn't see antisemitism
