Regardless of what are you after during your next journey, France has something for everyone to make a kosher travel unique and exceptional.
Being one of the oldest countries of the Old Continent, it has become the essence of the classic, European culture and for centuries, France gave the world some of the most influential men and women whose life shaped the history of Europe. This land was also the birthplace for many wonderful Jewish minds from artists to mathematicians.
A touch of Jewish Art
A great example is Moishe Segal, or as the world knows him, Marc Chagall, the Jewish painter whose art made a remarkable impact on many generation of artists, including his own era.
You can see his breathtaking work displayed in the prestigious Palais Garnier, the grandius Opera House of Paris, which on its own is a must-see stop in every kosher travel to France.
After collecting life-long memories in this world-famous landmark, head to one of the many renowned kosher restaurant of Paris to finish your day with a spectacular dinner.
Delicious Kosher places
L’Inte Caffe is just a stone-throw away from the Opera serving delicious kosher dishes, but if you don’t mind a little walk, Restaurant Kavod will make the extra steps worthwhile.
Fashion in Paris
If you are into the world of fashion and stay in Paris that is also the home of the world’s most influential designers, don’t miss to check out them showcasing their work at the city’s (and the globe’s) most glamourous fashion shows.
Don’t forget to pop in to the boutique of one of the celebrated Jewish designers at the Schmatta district and make sure you explore the many Jewish shops and delis in the Rue des Rosiers that is home to the welcoming local Jewish community.
French countryside and kosher wines
