This concluding chapter returns to the Assarraf family, tracing some of the descendants' trajectories out of Morocco and across the Moroccan-Jewish diaspora to France, Israel, and the United States. In reflecting on the departure of the vast majority of Morocco's Jews for Israel, Europe, and the Americas, the chapter reinserts law into the broader story of Jews' experience in modern North Africa. The far-flung traces of Jews' legal lives in nineteenth-century Morocco tell a story about mobility in the context of inequality, about integration in the face of high social and legal barriers, and about the deceptions of colonial modernity. The chapter also considers how these stories make us rethink the nature of interreligious relations and the place of law in both transcending and reinforcing hierarchies of difference.
