A delegation from the North American Boards of Rabbis visited Paris’ Grand Mosque. During Tuesday’s visit, the rabbis held talks with the mosque’s rector, Dalil Boubakeh. Describing the talks as “friendly and positive,” the board’s president, Rabbi Marc Schneier, told JTA that Boubakeh had been clear in condemning attacks against Jews in France as well as expressing criticism of Saudi Arabia for its support of Islamic fundamentalist groups around the world.
