Eden - Jewish Tours Guide

טיול יהודי בשכונת מארה בפריז – Eden specialized in the Jewish tours Paris Le Marais

Eden : Tour guide for the Jewish Paris Quarter

Eden is a tour guide in Paris, specialized in the Jewish tour in Le Marais.

He is a translator and a Hebrew teacher in Paris. He learned to speak a little Yiddish and German.

He plays Klezmer Music, in Parisian bars and Coffee shops, he mastered the clarinet instrument.

Born in Israel, in a Kibboutz in the Neguev, until the age of 8 surrounded by the warmth of the collective life, before he moved to Kfar-Saba, a city not far from Tel-Aviv.

Eden’s passion began when he studied philosophy in Jerusalem, seeing everyday from the window of the classroom : the amazing Old City, a labyrinth of history, religion and culture. Knowing that every monument, every church or synagogue have their own history, he quickly started learning about these fantastic and mystical places.

the growing interest for Jewish history came him after he moved to Paris where he got to know and work with the Jewish community in this beautiful city, starting in the Shoah Memorial as an official tour guide.

After living a few years in Paris, he started realizing that the Judaism of today is inextricably related to its diasporic existence and heritage. and the Jewish heritage of Paris is of one of the richest and the most diverse.

So, he learned a lot from Paris with Flora on the famed Jewish tour. Eden shares his stories with great passion.

We will visit one or two synagogues (depending on the opening day and time), see commemorative plaques for WWII, talk about the occupation of Paris, while discovering the cute narrow streets of le Marais, it’s lively cafés and bakeries, it’s schools and parcs.

Reviews on TripAdvisor: 

2018 : Excellent private tour of Jewish Paris : 

“My wife and I had a two-hour tour with Flora’s colleague, Eden. Starting at Notre Dame (not the obvious place to start, but there was a good reason for it, as we discovered) and ending in the Marais, Eden showed us places that we wouldn’t have found on our own and shared his extensive knowledge of Jewish Parisian life and history.

He was engaging and a pleasure to spend time with.

Highly recommend.”

2019 : Visit to Paris with my 21 year daughter

טיול יהודי בשכונת מארה בפריז

שמי הוא עדן, אני מדריך בפריז, מתרגם ומורה לעברית. גדלתי עד גיל 8, מוקף בחמימות של החיים הקולקטיביים, לפני שהורי עברו לכפר סבא, עיר לא הרחק מתל אביב.

התשוקה שלי להנחות נולדה כאשר למדתי פילוסופיה בירושלים, רואה כל יום מחלון הכיתה את העיר העתיקה המדהימה, מבוך של היסטוריה, דת ותרבות. בידיעה כי כל אנדרטה, כל כנסיה או בית כנסת יש היסטוריה משלהם, התחלתי במהירות ללמוד על המקומות האלה.

התעניינותי ההולכת וגוברת בהיסטוריה היהודית באה אלי לאחר שעברתי לפאריס, והכרתי ועבדתי עם הקהילה היהודית בעיר הזאת. לאחר כמה שנים של פריז, התחלתי להבין כי היהדות קשורה בקשר בל יינתק לקיומו ולמורשתו הגלותית.

פאריס מלמדת אותי סיפורים חדשים כל יום על יהדות ועל עצמי. אני אשמח מאוד לחלוק אותם איתך.
