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.

Jews and Muslims in France

with Dr. Ethan Katz, University of California, Berkeley

and Dr. Maud Mandel, President of Williams College

France is home to six million Muslims and half a million Jews; more Jews and Muslims live together there than in any other country except Israel. While extreme acts of Islamist-inspired anti-Semitism tend to dominate today’s headlines, theirs is a long history of shared experience, shared cultural sensibilities and solidarities across generations. What has changed the nature of their relationship? How has living in an avowedly secular although majority Catholic country influenced their ties?
