Recently in Tangier – Message from the Director

Dear TALIM Board Members, Fellows and Friends

December 12 - Holiday market benefitting Tangier nonprofits
The Legation’s Christmas Tree is live and is the same as the one used last year

On behalf of all of us in Tangier, I would like to dispense a bit with protocol and write all of you directly to wish all of your and your families a very happy holiday season.

Here are two photos of a yesterday’s Hanukkah celebration in Tangier at the former Jewish Casino, and of our own Marché de Noël that we hosted Saturday at the Legation along with 14 other Tangier NGO’s and charitable organizations.
