  • There is often confusion about the true quarter Jewish history of Paris. This one has been since the XIII th century, mainly based around the former St. Paul square (around the current metro station) which, after the construction of l Street of Rivoli by Haussmann, disappeared. The Jews then gradually settled in the district over the years and around the rue des Rosiers arrivals who long has been on the edge of the Paris intra muros with the walls of Philippe Auguste, created in 1200. Then the streets are also: paved, some Ecouffes, as well as the hospital Saint Gervais, who favors are arriving. The Museum of the history of Judaism located at no. 71 Temple Street is more to the West, and not really in the historic Jewish quarter. That is why linking the two is a bit haphazard! But well, it should be sure to visit the two places. Besides, there are stores specializing in famous Falafel, in the rue des Rosiers. Three shops side by side are a competing slogan suddenly! To the No. 4 bis of this street, you can still see the old Israelite School work. A plaque commemorates this event. The Ecouffes Street, is the Jew of teaching of the Torah of God and his oratory at no. 18; No. 6 of the Hospitalières St Gervais Street, is majority attended by Jewish children, school which was the first free. It was opened in 1844 with the help of the Jewish consistory. There are also a lot of commemorative plaques of the persecution of the Jews during the occupation, victims of the Holocaust. The street Ferdinand Duval, old street of the Jews, Morelos in 1900 after the Dreyfus affair, was the place of residence of the Ashkenazi Jews fleeing persecution in 1881; Finally street paved in number 10, it is interesting to look at the front of style "Art Nouveau" of the Agoudas Hakehilos synagogue, built in 1913 by the architect Hector Guimard the undisputed master of this Art in Paris. He must also feel the atmosphere of these places by walking preferably morning where activities are in full swing. This area is served by the metro station "Saint Paul" line no. 1
