Abstract

Some of the landmarks in the history of French Jews in modern times have experienced encounters between Ashkenaziand Sefardijews. A unique seminary that was erected in Paris ("Orsay") after the Second World War is an experience of this kind. Rabbi Y.L. Ashkenazi (Manitou), who presided this meeting, points to the dynamics of sociology and the identity system that emerge from it.
