The Marais :

The Marais, filled with magnificent historical buildings, charming streets and bustling kosher restaurants, boulangeries and charcuteries, has served as Paris's primary Jewish neighborhood since the 13th century. While still maintaining that old world charm, it is also the home to upscale art galleries, fashion houses and chic boutiques.
