The Moroccan American Recreational and Organizational Council NJ (MAROC) is a non-profit organization based in the State of New Jersey that works to provide administrative and recreational services to the Moroccan American community. Its mission is to build and sustain a strong network of Moroccan American families and professionals through promoting and supporting higher education, addressing the needs of the Moroccan American Community, and helping new Moroccan immigrants transition into the American society.
The contributions of Moroccan-Americans in the fields of education, politics, religion, culture, science, industry and business have helped shape this great city and the history of the United States. These accomplishments have unquestionably been an important asset to Jersey City and to our nation’s growth and cultural development over the centuries.
