Jews have lived in France since Roman times, and since the French Revolution (and Emancipation) have contributed to all aspects of French culture and society. A significant number perished in the Holocaust, deported to Nazi death camps by the French Vichy government. After the war, France served as a haven for Jewish refugees, and an influx of immigration (mostly of Sephardi Jews from North Africa) saw the Jewish population triple to around 600,000, making it the largest Jewish community in Western Europe at the present time.

The following is a list of some prominent Jews and people of Jewish origins (among others) (not all of them practice, or practiced, the Jewish religion) who were born in, or are very strongly associated with, France.

Une Réponse to “List of French Jews WIKIPEDIA”

  1. Hi there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work?
    I’m brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I
    can easily share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know
    if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
