Hundreds of families gather at Sacher Park in Jerusalem to celebrate Mimouna. They eat and dance together, many wearing traditional North African clothing. President Zalman Shazar arrives with the Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel, Yitzhak Nissim, and they are greeted enthusiastically with large trays of sweets. Then a Moroccan dress competition is held, most of the garments are very old and passed down from generation to generation.
