"France, which, with five hundred and fifty thousand Jews, has the largest community in western Europe, has always been quick to assimilate strangers to French culture and French ways. What there is of the organized Jewish community has always consisted of the last wave of immigrants--German Jews at one time, Polish Jews the next and now, mainly North African Jews from Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco, who made their homes in France after the various French territories became independent. There are numerous Jewish institutions, the principal of which, the Consistoire Central Israelite, is headed by Baron Elie de Rothschild, and there are many synagogues and youth groups. "

The Zionist movement is riven by feuds and has hardly more than a nominal existence. The Jewish Agency sends numerous emissaries from Israel and spends thousands of pounds trying to sustain viable Jewish youth organization, but with slight effect. Jewish observance is nominal, assimilationist tendencies are strong, as they have always been in France, only this time there is no wave of prospective new immigrants to replace the old as they fade from Jewish life... it is quite possible that in another generation or two French Jewry could cease to exist as an identifiable group.

"The 660,000 Jews of France (1989) now form the second-largest community in Europe, after that of the Soviet Union, thanks to the influx of some 300,000 Jews from Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria--the majority of the Jewish population in north Africa--in the 1950s and 1960s... They have a revived religious life, and some have even joined Hassidic sects and adopted their customs. Kosher butchers and Jewish bakers and bookshops are thriving as they have not done since before the outbreak of World War II. The greatest danger to French Jewry is assimilation. It is estimated that almost half of the marriages of secular Jews are made outside the faith. "
