Jewish Paris – A Virtual Summer Adventure

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

Join us for a fascinating, informative and funny 90-minute virtual walking tour of Jewish Paris! This tour will take us around the Jewish quarter, point out cultural landmarks that would be otherwise overlooked while at the same time sharing insights into what it was like to be a Jew in France during several fraught periods. Explore Le Marais (main Jewish neighborhood), Place de Vosges, Hotel de Sully, Synagogue Hector Guimard, Musee Carnvalet, and so much more in this interactive guided discussion.

Teacher

Karen Reb Rudel

Born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, Karen grew up with the aspiration to be a comedian, a musician, or both… She groomed these crafts from a young age by making everyone around her laugh and beginning a lifetime romance with the flute at the age of 9. She went on to study drama at Temple University in Philadelphia and played in a series of bands. From the age of 30 until she got married, Karen was back and forth between Paris and Philadelphia, working on musical projects and touring (including being the flautist and singer in a Reggae band in Paris). One day her parents came to visit her and Karen, having learned a lot about Paris, was showing them around when her mother exclaimed, “Karen, you would make a great tour guide!” That was the light bulb moment, and as the French say, voila! Paris has been Karen’s stomping ground for over 20 years, and her company is in a unique position to give you the historical background and underground cultural scoops that most walking tours leave out.
