A French Jewish leader received one of the country’s highest honors. Claude-Gerard Marcus, a longtime French legislator, was made an officer of the Legion of Honor in a ceremony last week in Paris, the European Jewish Press reported. Marcus is leader of the Judaism and Liberty group, which once worked to help Soviet Jews emigrate, and more recently has been involved in fighting anti-Semitism in France.
