Jewish Tours Paris 2020

More than 2000 Years of Jewish Heritage in Paris ready to be discovered with Jewish Tour Guide

Jewish Quarter Paris Tours – Le Marais Jewish walking tour

 

Welcome to Jewish Paris Tours,

my name is Flora Goldenberg,

I am a Tour Guide specialized in the Jewish Walking Tours in Paris.

I am Licensed by the state, after studying History and Art at the Sorbonne University for 5 years, that’s why I tour in all museums and monuments of my city like the Louvre, Versailles, Orsay.

I am born and raised in Paris, in le Marais. The Jewish Quarter of Paris has always been my Home: I am the granddaughter of Joe Goldenberg, owner of a famous restaurant in le Marais : Rue des Rosiers “Pletzl”. 

My mother is a tour guide in Paris as well, she inspired me in my Jewish tours. We designed together the Original Jewish Walking Tour of our beautiful neighborhood.

 You can contact me by Email : Flora.Goldenberg@gmail.com or Whatsapp +33616304735


Here is the list of my tours & some ideas for your stay : 


 – 1 – The Jewish Walking Tour in Le Marais Neighborhood Paris 

Duration : 3 Hours – Languages : English  + Español + Deutsch עִברִית + Français 

We will explore the Jewish Quarter located in the heart of Paris, the “Pletzl”, which has been the center of Jewish life in Paris since the 13th century.

While walking in the paved narrow streets of Le Marais, you will learn about the history of the Jewish communities in Paris, for more than 2000 years. We will talk about the history of the Jews in the Middle ages, when they were persecuted and expelled from the country in 1394. We’ll talk about the time of the French Revolution, and the occupation of Paris during WWII, and you will have the chance to discover some hidden places that only a local can know about.

I organize visits inside the beautiful synagogues of the neighborhood with the help of the local community.

We discover the Jewish shops, the Kosher bakeries and Jewish bookstores…

The tour can include a visit of the Holocaust memorial, located at the end of the tour, in Le Marais.

*Short Tours : We can do the short version without the Memorial and less walking.

*Long Tours : We can add la Place des Vosges, or a visit of the Louvre

After the tour, you can stay in Le Marais for lunch, and maybe try the famous Kosher Restaurants in the area or trendy Jewish restaurants ( but not Kosher)

– 5 – My Special Tours

After 5 years of studies in Art and History at the Sorbonne University, and 7 years of experience as a Private Guide in Paris, I love to guide in the beautiful museums that Paris has to offer :

Jewish Treasure Hunt for Kids : 3h

This is a kid friendly Jewish Treasure Hunt about the Jewish Heritage of Paris in le Marais, designed to engage with children 6 to 12 :

We will discover the origins of Jews in France, their History in Europe, precisely in Paris, and the actual situation.

The treasure hunt is printed on a colorful booklet, it is designed to be interactive with kids

The content is suitable for both : jewish and non-jewish families.

Enjoy a slow paced walk with your children, in the beautiful narrow streets of le Marais, discovering on their own, but with my help : the History of Paris, our french jewish heritage, learning some surprising facts about Paris City, while having breaks and moments to ask questions and to search for the answers around us.

This tour has the same itinerary as the Number 1 Tour : Le Jewish Marais.


My Food Tour in Le Sentier, Paris

Famous for its fabric/textile shops, this is where the Jews settled, as well as the main printing shops and newspapers started in the 19th century.

This is the perfect area, if you want to taste life the way the Parisians live it.

This tour will include different visits and tastings. One is a chocolate shop, where you’ll discover chocolate as an art experience.

Each chocolatier has his own creative style and the chocolate shop that you’ll visit is unique for its original creations, but also because it is a very rare place where the lab to make the chocolate is there, at the same place where you’ll eat it ! Discover how the old-fashioned artisan chocolatier used to work. You’ll learn how chocolate arrived in France, the story of the cocoa bean and it’s journey. 

Flora Goldenberg - Happy Jewish Tour in Paris - Family Friendly

Flora answered all our questions very quickly by email. She booked us for the small group tour of le Marais. We shared the experience with 2 other visitors and it felt like a private tour with a real Jewish French guide. We learned a lot about the jewish life in Paris and the jews of France in general. Le Marais has a lot of charm and Flora made it more alive ! thank you again for taking good care of us 😉 It was the highlights of our stay!

I am the owner of a luxury travel agency and it’s one of my greatest missions to find the absolute best tour guides in each city. I feel SO lucky to have discovered Flora - what a gem. From the very first email, I knew Flora would be the perfect fit: she is prompt with her replies, creative in the construction of tours, speaks flawless English and her prices are fair. I love that she is such an accomplished, certified guide as she brings to the table a wealth of knowledge and precise accuracy that cannot be replicated by most guides. Above all, Flora’s people skills are beyond measure. She goes above and beyond to make sure tours and client experience are both flawless and for that, we are especially grateful. If you are looking for a Parisian guide to show you the sites - with a Jewish focus or without - Flora really is the perfect fit. You will not be disappointed!

I connected with Flora online and knew I wanted her to be our tour guide for me, my daughter, and my 10 year old twin granddaughters. The timing did not work out for us but she connected me with her colleague Ben. We LOVED Ben and were so grateful for him to have been the one (other than Flora) to be our guide. He connected with my family as if we were the only ones in the world he had to devote time to, (and there were 4 other people on our tour.) He presented a LOT of history in a very understandable fashion for the girls, and was always aware that anything he said needed to be absorbed by young people. We then had the pleasure of having Ben join us for lunch and that was amazing. Thanks Ben for a great morning in the Marais!!

Flora did a GREAT job showing us (two grandparents with a 13 year old granddaughter) the Marais and explaining both its history and that of French Jewry. She has a wonderful demeanor and was a pleasure to be with. Her knowledge was great and easily communicated. And importantly, she paced the tour on a hot day to make it enjoyable. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get a feel and experience of the area and its history.

Flora was not available but recommended Cynthia who we toured with for 3 days: Marais, Lourve and Versailles. Our group of six had an amazing experience, Cinthia's knowledge of French history and art was encyclopedic! Flora arranged everything for your tours, made suggestions that were spot on and handled a small glitch with ease. We are not Jewish but the Shoah Memorial brought my family to tears. Thank you Flora!

Livia was an outstanding guide. We took a Jewish tour of the Paris Marais and the information she provided was extremely thorough and we felt that we learned more in 2 hours than the previous 6 trips we have taken to Paris over the past 5 years.
