Saint Hanania Cohen is buried in the city’s Jewish cemetery. 2. Saint Yaacob Nahamias or Moul Almay, is buried in the town of Sidi Rahal, near Marrakech. 3. Rabbi Shlomo ben Hensh is found in the Ourika valley, about 2 hours from Marrakech. 4. Saint David Lachkar or Moulay Ighi, is buried at the highest point on the road to Ouarzazate, in the stronghold of the most powerful Berber family of the twentieth century, the Glaoui.
