France’s interior minister visited a synagogue near Paris on Tuesday whose rabbi was injured in an anti-Semitic attack. Addressing congregants and local political leaders at the synagogue in Ris Orangis, Nicolas Sarkozy said, “When a Jew is attacked, it is not a Jewish community problem but a national community one.” Ris Orangis Rabbi Michel Serfaty, who also heads the Commission for Inter-Religious Dialogue for the Paris Consistoire, which deals with the religious needs of the community, was attacked near his synagogue last Friday.
