The Moroccan Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto congratulates HM King Mohammed VI and the Moroccan people on the occasion of the Youth Festival which marks the 57th anniversary of His Majesty, and the 67th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People.
The Rabbi who was appointed President of the Hebrew Court of Casablanca by the King presents his warm congratulations and his ultimate respect and loyalty to His Majesty, praying to God to keep him as a protector and source of goodness and humanity for his people. He also wished to His Majesty to continue celebrating this occasion in triumph with Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan at his side. The Rabbi has great love for HM the King whom he had the good fortune to meet on several occasions and spoke to him directly. He states that HM is an exceptional king who is unlike any other king and president he has ever met.
The first Youth Day celebration was in 1956 when Sultan Mohammed V decided to celebrate the birth of his Crown Prince Hassan II. However, HM King Mohammed VI decided to stop these celebrations last year.
Moroccans celebrated on Thursday the 67th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People. This famous occasion of immense historical value commemorates the revolution of the Moroccan people against the French colonizers, the latter having designated Mohammed Ben Aarafa as Sultan. The revolutions and movements led by the people against these measures led to the return of the legitimate Sultan to his country and the achievement of Morocco’s independence.
