We were in the area and decided it was worth more than just a walk through. It is encouraging to see that the neighborhood has survived its past and present travails. I grew up in an area where there was a large and thriving Jewish community and it is good to see this one prospering, despite the need to have... More

If you have an hour or two to spend, I highly recommend the jewish quarter. Seeing the small jewish population/stores/cafes that still exist in france is very meaningful to anyone of the jewish faith. A little bit away is also memorial de la shoah (holocaust memorial). I highly recommend seeing the memorial, which is quite impressive.

We stayed in this area and loved every minute. When we came out of our apartment each morning and stepped out into de Rosier we were in the middle of French life. Butcher cafe shops, Hustle and bustle of everyday French life.....brilliant!

I thought it would be nice to walk around the Jewish Qtr in Paris one morning to sample the delicacies and see how my fellow Jews live in Paris. Although I can see that it was once a charming area, the actual Jewish Quarter as been reduced to a short block. I sampled a pierogi at Sasha Finkelsztajn and was... More

As a '1/4 Jew' I was happy to visit this lively vivid place of Jewish culture in the middle of Paris! My Tunesian BoyFriend was also happy as a Moslem to find some Halal meat and to eat the wonderful Mezze chez Marianne with me. Beautiful architecture with this big WindowDoors, small streets, many shops open till 21 h and... More

I was here in December 2011 . Orthodox jews in their black suits and hats everywhere. I went there around Yom Kippur, so you could hear very Jewish music. Kosher pizza, kosher falafels, everything Jewish there. And of course, shopping!! Its also a shopping district Id say, better than LaFayette i'd say. Nearby is the Hotel De Ville, go ice... More

Our friends had rented an apartment on rue Pavee in the Marais Area or Jewish Quarter so we visited several times during our three month stay in Paris. The Kosher food (Falafel Pita) was excellent and several good bakeries. Even though this is the Jewish Quarter there is also good diversity of many cultures.

La rue des Rosiers lies at the center of the Jewish quarter unofficially called "the Pletzl" (Yiddish for "little place"). Agoudas Hakehilos Synagogue (Union of the Communities), at 10 rue Pavee in Le Marais, commonly referred to at the Pavee synagogue or Guimard synagogue, was erected in 1913 by the architect Hector Guimard. Its façade is beautiful and unique. Boulangerie... More
