THE STORY. AT A GLANCE.

France is the most visited country in the world. And with good reason. The moment you enter the country, you are in a romance. With the seductive beauty of the French language. With the vineyards, croissants, and berets. With the dazzling coastlines of the stunning French Riviera. With the banks of the Seine River in beautiful Paris. With its breathtakingly beautiful landscapes dotted with picturesque villages and chateaux. With yourself as you discover parts of yourself you never knew existed in this country that has inspired writers and artists for centuries.

 

INSIDE OUT. JEWISH FRANCE.

Over half a million Jews live in France, making it the third biggest Jewish community in the world, after Israel and the United States. Unsurprisingly, more than half of France’s Jewish population can be found in Paris, but there are substantial Jewish communities in Marseilles, Lyons, Toulouse, Nice, Strasbourg, Grenoble, Metz, and Nancy. Jews have been present in France ever since the early Middle Ages, and within two years of the French Revolution, were granted emancipation giving them equal rights under the law. However, Jews have suffered a troubled history in France. Despite the Jews’ ongoing quest to cement their place in French society, anti-Semitism has been a common theme throughout time that continues to cast a shadow on Jewish life until this day.
