A small museum crammed full of French -Jewish history. In addition to historical information, there are beautiful pieces of judaica, original works of art including paintings by Chagall, small models of synagogues and a photo exhibition of modern day Jews living in France and talking about their jewish identities. The museum is on a number of floors, the top level is devoted to the Jews who immigrated from Arab countries and blended their sephardic customs and lifestyles with those of the already existing ashkenazic community [which was largely decimated by the holocaust and revived by this influx of observant Jewery]. Well worth a visit.
