Overview


The Complete Jewish Guide to France is the only resource you need to embark on a trip through Jewish France. Travel writer and journalist Toni L. Kamins catalogs information on well-known sights and little-known treasures, such as the Marais district (Paris's celebrated Jewish neighborhood), ancient ghettos, beautiful old synagogues around the country, and many other places. She includes information on transportation and lodging, plus hundreds of places to buy kosher food. Selected photographs and maps fill out the picture. Kamins also recounts the nearly two thousand years of French-Jewish history beginning with evidence that Jews may have lived in France as early as the first century, and continuing right up to the present day.

The Complete Jewish Guide to France has everything you need to know to make your trip to France a success-and to put it into a historical context that will make it even more worthwhile.

    Completely Fascinating!

    This book is a portable treasure-trove of the Jewish history and culture of France. It is written in a highly-readable, informal, enthusiastic style that engages you from the start. If you have been to France before, you will see familiar sites in a fresh way, and you will discover lots of new ones. If you have never been to France, this book is an invaluable addition to the general-interest guidebooks. (Even if you're not planning a trip, the book is an informative treat.) I'm not an observant Jew, but I do want to learn more about my people's heritage, and this book turned out to be an excellent resource.
