Soon after Israel is established, riots against Jews erupt in towns across Morocco, killing 44. In the next year, with the aid of Zionist organizations based in Israel and Morocco, nearly 20,000 Jews flee for Israel. These emigration patterns continue into the 1960s, draining Morocco of its nearly 250,000 Jews.
