Mozaik, a radio on Moroccan Judaism, will be launched in September. The construction of its studios, based in Casablanca, is being finalized, confirmed the initiator of the project, Jacques Knafo.
Member of the Higher Council for Education, Training and Scientific Research of Morocco, Knafo explains that the file was submitted to the High Authority for Audiovisual Communication (HACA) for the granting of a license, and that the statutes are being revised.
“The HACA asked us to clarify the legal status and we must comply with the specifications of private radio stations. We will re-submit the case soon,” he said.
Kanfo is also a member of the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises (CGEM).
Initially, the radio will first be digital, in web radio format, before being deployed on FM waves once the HACA has granted its license.
“It is a radio centered on the socio-cultural and will be broadcast initially in Casablanca, Rabat and Marrakech then it will be extended to other cities such as Fez and Tangier”, specified Jacques Knafo, who is the main one. shareholder with a French financial partner.
He explained that Mozaik will primarily address the Jewish diaspora of Moroccan origin, made up of more than a million people, and will also reach the rural world in Morocco, the cradle of Moroccan Judaism.
The objective of this radio, which will speak in Darija, Hebrew, Amazigh and French, according to its initiator, is to highlight the Judeo-Moroccan heritage.
