The grand lighting was part of more than 60 public menorah lightings and events taking place around Paris this year, with many designed for children, teens and young professionals.

Parisian Kids are celebrating Halloween, Barbes shops reducing opening hours during Ramadan, Christmas deko is allover and for Chinese New Year there is a huge parade - all lights on earth should be lighten up for those who suffered or lost their lifes because of religion! Reply

Amaized I'm as amazed as I am pleased to see a Menorah in front of the Tower. I grew up during World War 2 when anti-Semetism ran rampant throughout France. And I hear it's still alive in Europe. May the Menorah lights continue to shine brightly -- forever. Reply
