   R. Jacob b. Moses Toledano (d. c. 1928) was a rabbinical authority in Meknes and a poet. His piyyutim and poems were published as Yagel Ya'akov (in: Yismah Yisrael, 1931).

R. Joshua b. Jacob Berdugo (1878–1953) became chief rabbi of Meknes in 1904 and in 1941 chief rabbi of Morocco, where he served until his death. He had a strong personality and on a number of occasions was in conflict with the leaders of the Church and with members of the French government, by whom he was respected. The communal rules and regulations adopted during this time were published in the pamphlets of "The Council of Moroccan Rabbis" (Casablanca). None of his books was published.
