When he was young he played yiddish music in our family’s restaurant in le Marais, Rue des Rosiers, and then we worked together in the Shoah Memorial. I trust him with his training and that’s why we teamed up to do the jewish tours.
After working with Ben in the Shoah memorial for more than 4 years, I found out that he studied management and economics at Dauphine University and he graduated in Jewish Studies at l’Alliance Israélite Universelle in Paris and at Paideia the European Institute for Jewish Studies in Stockholm, Sweden.

Highly recommended Professional Tour Guide for the Museums of Paris 

Speaks Perfect English & French

Emma holds qualifications in Art History from University College Dublin and La Sorbonne. Her innovative masters research focused on how Egyptian themes were used as propaganda in the public art of Napoleonic Paris.

One thing her research highlighted is that art, architecture and historical events don’t happen in a vacuum and it is only when you start looking at them in context that they really come to life.

She is a great story teller and communicator

Treasure Hunt in the Louvre

Emma has a passion for storytelling and so stories are central to the way she talks about history.

She is amazing with kids, she grabs their attention during her Treasure Hunts that she developed herself.

Kids learn better and retain the stories and the knowledge during the treasure hunts of the Louvre

I recommend her vividly for Treasure Hunts with Families !


She has worked as an educator and researcher at various cultural organisations and museums in France, Ireland and the UK – including the Louvre, Orleans House Gallery and the Arts Service of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, where she managed a dynamic team of educators and designed educational programs for a wide range of age groups and backgrounds.  She currently lectures in Museum Studies at the Sorbonne Nouvelle.

Jewish from her Father

Emma is Jewish from her Father and her Grandfather’s name, before the Shoah, was “Izrael”, then due to assimilation during the WWII , her grandfather fled France to go to Ireland and changed his name to Durand.

Jewish tour guide in Paris

Raised in Paris by a French father and an English mother, I grew up surrounded by Parisian culture, while being exposed to an English and Jewish Ashkenazi culture, going to school in the Marais and taking Hebrew classes.

On Sundays, my parents often bring my sister and I to the Marais to visit my great grandmother, who lived just in front of the Musée Picasso.

From time to time we would go down to the Rue des Rosiers, to try out some of the Jewish food specialties.
On school holidays, we go and stay with my grandparents in London, on Friday evenings we go to our local synagogue, celebrate Pessah and Hannukah.
In my early 20’s, I had the chance to travel and live around the world, studying Drama and Film in the United Kingdom, living in abroad in Australia and teaching English in Mexico.

On my return to Paris, I decided to become a tour guide because it provided a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and share my knowledge and fascinating stories while fulfilling my passion for Languages, History, and Foreign Culture study.
I have been working as a tour guide for 4 years now and I am in the process of passing a diploma in History and Art History to become a fully certified guide.

On the side, I work on theater improvisation and music projects.

I have a keen interest in the subject of the History of Jews, the History of the occupation during the IInd World War, as well as the Parisian classical and medieval architecture. Although the IInd World War period is often linked with a sense of fantasy and heroism for many people, for me, personally, it resounds with the French Half of my family’s trying to live through the occupation and surviving the Holocaust…
Today, one of my favorite aspects of being a tour guide with Flora, is meeting people from all over the world and showing them around, not only the Jewish heritage but also the many facets of the city we grew up in.


I am Caroline and I am a tour guide in Paris !

Caroline M Jewish Tour Guide Paris

I specialized in decorative arts and architecture in College. I continued my studies in the School of the Louvre where I studied Archeology, History, Art History … and I specialized in Design from the 18th century to the early 20th century as well as Museography. 

I graduated from my History of Arts Master’s degree in 2018. 

Since then, I organized lectures, exhibitions and made cultural mediations in Parisian museums.

Connecting with people and understanding their needs for culture is personally and professionally enriching. What I liked the most from all these years was to work with a different audience because you have to adapt every time and it is much more fun!  For instance, working with kids on a contemporary art tour taught me a lot about myself and even changed my perception of modern art. The kids are very bright and provide new and fresh answers. They make unbelievable connections and add more energy and motivation.

I have been working on a die project for several years, making research on a French artist from the Art deco period (1910s) who was collected back at the time by the Rothschild family. I felt an immediate passion for his work and the early Art deco period which took place in the 1910s. That’s why, I did not stop there and started to read and research every art movement that emerged back then. My all time favorite is the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design who came from Jerusalem in the 1910s and produced many artifacts from jewels of Yemenite tradition to silverwork of Ashkenasi design. 

Learning about Jewish artists connected me more to my own Jewish culture in many ways. I even started to read Hebrew and I hope I will improve soon !

Being Jewish, eating kosher (I would love to recommend to you my favorite places in the Marais), keeping Shabbat and celebrating the holidays made me feel the need to work for the Jewish community. 

Caroline M Jewish tour Guide in Paris

That is why I met Flora Goldenberg, with whom I share the same ideals and who trained me as a tour guide.

Discovering Paris (and it never ends!) is a very special feeling that I love to share with you. I am passionate about Paris’ old history and I even served as a guide in the Musée Carnavalet which is also located in the heart of the Marais and covers all of Paris’ History. 

I would be delighted to make you discover my city from a Local Jewish perspective !


Jewish Tour guide in Paris, he can tour in Hebrew / English / French

Eden during the Jewish tours of Paris Le Marais

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 !

Marie art historian Jewish Art history

My name is Marie, I’m thirty years-old and I live and work in Paris. I was born
and raised in Normandy. At 16, I left the lovely countryside for my studies. I
settled in my great grand-parents house in Boulogne, rue des arts. As the
name of the street indicates, great artists had resided in those house-ateliers
built by the Architect Le Corbusier.

He had planned to build three on the same parcel. One for Chaim Lipschitz,
one for Oscar Miestchaninoff and one for Marc Chagall. All accomplished and
renowned Jewish artists from Eastern Europe. Rumor has it Marc Chagall was
not interested and told Victor Canale (my great-great-grandfather) about the
plot, which he bought. Victor Canale then copied the plans of Le Corbusier
and created his own house ! I come from a family of artists: engravers,
sculptors, enamelers and so on. My great-grand-father, Raymond Corbin
taught in les Beaux Arts of Paris and was a member of the Institut de France.
He was a renowned engraver and a sculptor with many distinctions including
the Blumenthal Prize in 1936 1 as sculptor and medallist. During the war he
and my great-great-grandmother Charlotte Corbin, made utilitarian ceramics
to survive and help the people around them. After the war, he was chosen
along other sculptors to create a high relief representing the Resistance in the
Maquis for the Mémorial of the Mont-Valérien, near Paris, which was
inaugurated by Charles de Gaulle in 1960.

I was lucky enough to spend my young years with them. After their passing,
enriched by their passion and knowledge, I decided to study art history in
University. During my master degree, I specialised in the spoliations that
happened to the Jews due to the antisemitic legislations of the occupant and
the regime of Vichy. I worked in a commission, the CIVS, to provide
compensation for the material and financial spoliations that took place in
France during the Occupation. I got to explore the archives, hoping to find
traces of looted artworks to return. I had the pleasure to witness the
restitutions of great artworks stolen during the occupation and placed in the
care of renowned museums after the war. These numerous artworks were
waiting to be claimed by their owners. Despite the end of my work mission, my
interests for this period of our History kept growing stronger. I continued my
studies abroad, in Madrid and in North Macedonia.

I realize that what I liked the most was sharing knowledge so I became a certified guide by the State and today, I work with Flora Goldenberg on her original Jewish tour of Paris

In 2019, I was hired by the Shoah Memorial of Paris in the pedagogical
department. Visit after visit, and it became more evident for me the importance to pass on
those memories.

By walking in the Marais, it is possible to uncover the history of the Jews in
Paris thanks to some traces that I invite you to discover with me.

This is just a quick note of appreciation for the arrangements Flora set up for my family’s visit to Paris over the holidays. I can not say enough good words for Flora. She was not available during the period of our visit but arranged with associate tour guides Livia and Caroline. She arranged transportation for our family with Serge. Everything worked like clockwork. Our trip was a total success. Livia gave a wonderful and personal tour of the Marais district - filled with lots of information about Jewish-France relationships. She connected very well to our grand-daughters, which was our greatest desire for the trip. Livia also worked her influential magic in getting us into the falafel place w/o the enormous line. We all felt that we had made a friendship with Livia. Caroline gave us a wonderful tour of Versailles and spoke to our grand-daughters as well as Marilyn and me. Lots of fun facts about the life and times of the Louis. Lots of anecdotes that were interesting and fun for us all. She was generous with suggestions for us beyond the tour, such as best places to get world’s best chocolates, pastries etc.. We had a fun time and she also felt like a new friend. Serge’s limo services were terrific as well - we were picked up reliably even though our plane was a bit late. Serge was eager to help make sure arrangements were as they should be, flexible to our request to leave earlier than needed, even though rather early in the morning, for our return flight. He was also generous by sending us a list of his favorite restaurants, including one that served kosher food. When we return to Paris someday, we would surely engage him again. Another new friend in Paris. We really appreciate how easy Flora’s company made it for us. We certainly recommend you to our friends who may be considering Paris trips.

I contacted Flora Goldenberg for information on a Jewish Tour of the Louvre (which I found out is something new) and also a Jewish Tour of le Marais. Because of the last minute planning of our trip she was unable to give the tours herself but highly recommended 2 of her colleagues. Both were fabulous and so very very knowledgeable. Melanie (a great art historian) was bright, lovely and definitely knew so much of the Jewish Art at the Louvre. I am sorry we didn't book her for longer! Chantal guided us thru le Marais and was a wealth of information. In addition to being so knowledgeable she was also very lovely and a pleasure to be with. She even got us into the best falafel restaurant with very little wait time! In addition, Flora was always available to respond to my many questions and was a wealth of information regarding the best kosher restaurants, hotel info and the best limo driver!! Thank you Flora!

This was a highly informative and educational tour of La Marais, the Jewish quarter. Alix brought some personal aspects to the tour, since her great grandmother was taken while she was pregnant, but survived, thus allowing Alix to be born. We went to the Memorial to the Martyrs of the Deported, which is a very foreboding experience, particularly as you enter and go from the light into the dark. The Shoah Memorial is also moving, especially the walls of names of people who were taken, grouped by year. Inside, there is the children’s memorial, which has thousands of photos of children who were taken, some less than a year old. We were shown a hidden synagogue, which for some reason was not located by the Nazis, allowing Parisian Jews to worship. There are many other interesting sites and stories. We ended at a very popular area of eating establishments during lunchtime. We had a delicious meal. We highly recommend this tour.

Our family absolutely loved this walking tour and we've subsequently recommended it highly to all of our family and friends back home in Australia. We gained so many insights into the rich history of Paris' Jewish community and the significant and changing role that community has played in the city's evolving and complex social and political environments. The tour was perfectly paced and Flora's engaging style and first hand knowledge of the subject matter, the diverse streetlife and local architecture, as well as the amazing range of wonderful local cafes, bakeries and restaurants was amazing. This half day walking tour was an absolute highlight of our trip to France.
