This promenade starts from the line 4 metro Cite stop - site of the earliest Jewish community - and offers a history of the Jews in France from Roman times through the Middle Ages, from exile to emancipation, and all the way until today. Making sense of the current French Jewish population requires walking to the Deportation Memorial, through the lower Marais to the Wall of the Righteous, and up to the Pletzel, which is the old Ashkenazi neighborhood. At that point we will be fully immersed in today's most commercially known Jewish community and we will continue to another, non-touristic one, where anecdotes about the larger Jewish experience in Paris are more tractable.
