The French Revolution, Napoleon and the Jews
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Until the French Revolution, France's Jews were mired in insecurity, expelled by kings greedy to steal their wealth, invited back to create more while still subject to restrictive legislation. But influenced by the ideals of the Enlightenment, after a series of contentious debates, the French revolutionaries offered Jews the full rights of citizenship in 1791— and Napoleon affirmed them, even as he placed new regulations on the tiny community. How did Enlightenment ideals and prejudices shape the emancipation of French Jewry? And what was the goal of Napoleon's reorganization of Jewish life?
