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

This neighborhood has wonderful food. It is in the Marais, which is already beautiful, but the Rue des Rosiers is especially great as far as restaurants go. There are several Jewish bakeries here (yummy), as well as my favorite restaurant in Paris, l'As du Fallafel. The falafel pita sandwich is amazing - get it to go (cheaper) and find a... More
