May these streets bring you comfort in a city that otherwise may feel overwhelming. If you are Jewish please support this area so it will thrive. We went to the conservative temple and spoke with the Rabbi. We saw the old torahs and other artifacts....More

The underground is really easy to use. You will find the museum of jewish art and history at "Rambuteau" or "Hôtel de ville" stations. The MAHJ displays one of the most beautiful and oldest jewish collection, with paintings of Chagall, contemporary artists, a Magnasco painting, etc.and you will learn a lot about Jews in French history. Don't forget to ask for the map of the Jewish district beginning "Rue des Rosiers" at five minutes walk from there : You'll find interesting tips in it.
