      Moroccan Drought Ends after Jews Pray for Rain

      The Jewish Press reports Jews throughout Morocco this past Sabbath responded to a plea by King Mohammed VI and prayed for rain.

      “In conformity with the high instructions of His Majesty the King Mohammed VI, commander of the faithful, these prayers will be called for in all the synagogues to implore the Almighty to spread ample rain throughout the territory of the Kingdom,” the Council of the Jewish Community stated, adds The Jewish Press.

      The Morocco World News reported, “Moroccan Jews performed prayers in all the synagogues in the country, imploring God to spread bountiful rain on the entire territory of the Kingdom.”

      Two days after the reiteration of the Simchat Torah rain prayer on the Sabbath, there were abundant thunderstorms across the country.
