I just wanted to be specific by mentioning North African customs since it's very possible that jews from the arabian peninsula out through eastern asia might have sustained this tradition more actively then N.african jews.

The Jews of Yemen also maintained an accurate tradition of the permitted species of locusts.

I would like to emphasize that this tradition is not limited to people whose ancestry trails back to these locations. Qibbuts Galuyyoth (The ingathering of the exiles) has already begun, thank God, and people can drink from the traditions of their brothers in ways their ancestors could not. This tradition, and others, is open for all to come and receive, if only you are thirsty enough to seek it. For those willing, the horizons of Tora are limitless.

Yeah, I think I'll pass on the locust tradition lol... though I'm told that when my parents were kids, they'd eat them like watermelon or sunflower seeds.

You will "pass" (i.e., choose not to partake) on the tradition? Or "pass on" the tradition to your kids?

I was fairly certain which you meant. I just thought the possible alternate meaning was funny.
