About Rabbi of Mogador Joseph ben Aharon Elmaleh

Joseph ben Aaron Elmaleh (1809–1886) was born in Rabat, where he later served as Dayyan. In 1826 he went to Mogador and about 1840 was appointed rabbi there. He became Austrian consul and was decorated both by the emperor Franz Joseph and by the bey of Tunis. Joseph was active on behalf of the persecuted Jews of Morocco, opposing missionary activities, and bringing many apostates back to the fold. In 1879 on one of his numerous business visits to Europe, he was offered the position of Rabbi to the Spanish and Portuguese community in London, but declined. He died in London. His son Reuben became head of the community of Mogador as well as Austrian Consul.
