BERDUGO married Perla
(There was no photo taken of the actual marriage, but the
photo here was taken a few months
later in their wedding clothes. In the photo, Perla
is already expecting her first child Sol.)
Rabbi Mimoun began his career as a printer early in life, and continued to work while
continuing his rabbinical studies in Meknes,
Morrocco. He stopped printing and opened a wholesale
store. By working together with his wife's uncle Machlouf
ELGRABLI he was able to continue his studies of the Torah.
When he built his house in the New Mellah, he found it natural to build a synagogue
alongside it where his father Rabbi Abraham BERDUGO
led the congregation.
In 1968, he left Morocco for a grand tour of France, and then joined
his daughters Rebeccaand
Suzannewho had already made aliyah to Israel.
He settled with his family in Kiriat Yam near Haifa.
He continued his business in partnership with his son Ben Sion.
Patriarch of the family, respected by all for his wisdom. He passed away in 1983
leaving a great void behind him.
