History of the Jews in Mauritania spans from as early as the fall of the Jewish state in 70 BCE.[1] They spread throughout the Roman Empire, including the province of Mauritania raising cattle, farming, and trading.[1] After the Byzantines gained control in 534 CE, a series of restrictive laws were enacted against the Jews and other dissenters.[1]
