A year after the Rue des Rosiers terrorist attack, France’s Jews are preparing to celebrate a traditional Yom Kippur with synagogues and temporary temples expecting record crowds for Nehila and Kol Nidre. Even small community centers say hundreds have this year applied for advance seats and expect thousands of new worshippers. Traditional Jewish restaurants, delis and even cafeterias say they are already fully booked for the end of the Yom Kippur Saturday night fast-breaking meal.
