Walking Tour of the Jewish Marais

Due to the covid 19 epidemic, this program has been cancelled. Tours for small groups (up to 15) are available from 1st september 2020

A guided tour for everyone: children, teenagers and adults

The beautiful Marais neighborhood has long been considered the symbolic and historical heart of Jewish life in Paris. The Museum of Jewish Art and History (mahJ) invites you to join an English language walking tour to discover Parisian Jewish culture past and present.

As you experience the sights and smells of this dynamic neighborhood, you will learn about key moments in French Jewish history, from the optimism following the Jewish Emancipation (1791) to the darkest days of WWII. By following in the footsteps of the Yiddish-speaking Ashkenazi immigrants who settled here in the 1880s and the Sephardic North African Jews who reinvigorated the Marais after the Holocaust, this tour will showcase the mosaic of cultures still visible in this vibrant district today.

Meet at the Admission desk a few minutes before the tour.

The 2020 summer programming alternates this walking tour with guided museum tours of the permanent collection.

This tour is also available on request for groups in English, German, Hebrew and Spanish.
