In the context of strengthening the relationship between the two cities, the Municipal Council of Fez decided in May 2019 to organize an annual cultural week for Al-Quds Al-Sharif.
The Municipal Council also decided another set of steps to support the city of Jerusalem, including:

  • Dispatching students from Al-Quds Al-Sharif to qualify and train Moroccan crafts professions in specialized institutes and schools in Fez.
  • Exchange visits and host youth and cultural activities between the twin cities
  • Provide support to Jerusalem students who wish to study in the universities, institutes and colleges of the city of Fez,
  • and support small projects that can be implemented in Al-Quds Al-Sharif.

The Moroccan Post issued this stamp in 1984 to commemorate this relationship between the two city.
