Paris had a Jewish population since at least the beginning of common era. The oldest Jewish area of Paris doesn't exist any more (fifth arrondissement of today) and the medieval Jewish Quarter with rue des Juifs is called other name today.
Todays most important Jewish Quarter of Paris is Marais, although it had no Jewish population following several expulsions and bans and was resettled in early 19th century.
Marais is known as Pletzel (small place) in Yiddish and many kosher shops and restaurants are to be found in this part of Paris. Agudath HaKehilot (or Agoudas HaKehilos) is Marais' major synagogue.
Le Marais is to be found on the right bank of Seine river this Jewish district is situated partly in 3rd and partly in 4th arrondissements. Rue des Rosiers is the main centre of Jewish life in France. There are many kosher restaurants, bakeries and butchers in the area, among them Les Ailes Restaurant, Mi-Va-Mi (Israeli, glatt) and Micky's Deli.
Other important Jewish area of Paris is the Faubourg Montmartre district with a well known Sephardi synagogue at 28 rue Buffault.

London neighbourhoods Our family of four is traveling to London in July. We would like to look for an air bnb in a secular neighbourhood within an hour's walk to an Orthodox synagogue. Can you suggest some neighbourhoods for us to try?
how to ship belongings What does Customs allow or what items do they tax heavily. I have electronics, laptop, tablet, printers, I need as a writer, and also want some household items for an apt. with me. Want to give out blankets, soup, and bread to poor and shut-in Holocaust survivors too. Have Israeli friends, but don't want to bother them before I visit them. No idea who to contact for apt. search and for Customs requirements.

After a few years of cooking experiance for private entities and private events, Sarin Benhaim began her Glatt Kosher Miami Restaurant. With a little help from herfriends and family, she built Sarina's Kitchen, a showcase for Glatt Kosher experiance. The restaurant is simple, casual and relaxed. You can wear jeans or a suit, you can drink beer or champagne. Truly, it is all about the food. Every customer has the full attention and the feeling of eating home, the feel of the Jewish Mom's Kitechen and love.
Visiting Sarina's Kitchen Kosher Restaurant is like coming over to Benhaim’s house for friday night dinner. Welcoming you at the door, cooking your food, serving your drinks. Chef Sarin visits as many tables as she can each evening, mostly to talk and express her knowledge about the food. This is his dream come true, her passion and her life.
