There is 2 "jewish arrondissments" in Paris : XIXe and IVe. The best one is the IVe for its history.
Le Marais with 2 nice synagogues, the sefaradic one (rue des Tournelles) and the askenaze one, Charles Liché (place des Vosges).
Moreover, many kosher restaurants are around. Taste "l'as du falafel" rue des rosiers.
London neighbourhoods Our family of four is traveling to London in July. We would like to look for an air bnb in a secular neighbourhood within an hour's walk to an Orthodox synagogue. Can you suggest some neighbourhoods for us to try?
how to ship belongings What does Customs allow or what items do they tax heavily. I have electronics, laptop, tablet, printers, I need as a writer, and also want some household items for an apt. with me. Want to give out blankets, soup, and bread to poor and shut-in Holocaust survivors too. Have Israeli friends, but don't want to bother them before I visit them. No idea who to contact for apt. search and for Customs requirements.
The only number you need for all your travel around Israel. Hotel, Airport, Simchas, Touring, Eilat, Masada, Golan, Tiberias, Dead Sea etc. or wherever your imagination takes you!
