By Erik H. Cohen

Littman Library of Jewish Civilization, 2009

Choice of school plays a pivotal role in the formation and expression of French-Jewish identity. This article compares the background, attitudes, values and practices of French Jewish families who send their children to Jewish day schools with those who send their children to public school or non-Jewish private schools. Far from being an enclave for the most orthodox families, the private Jewish day school has become a site for expressing Jewish identity and creating Jewish community among a population facing rapid social change.
