About the series

The French Jewish Experience

For a thousand years, French Jews have swung on a pendulum from triumph to tragedy. Some of the greatest Jewish rabbis, composers and thinkers, going as far back as Rashi and his grandson Rebenu Tam, have made France their home. Yet despite their wide-ranging successes, France’s Jews are no strangers to the woes of the modern Jewish experience.

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center has been proud to sponsor a 7-part lecture series in collaboration with the Copernic Synagogue in Paris to explore that complex story, at once so familiar and entirely alien to many American Jews.

The French Jewish Experience:
