Passover in Paris?

Quick unexpected trip is taking us to Paris during Passover. Any thoughts on where we can join a dinner? My favorite holiday...mostly because if the food! But love the tradition.

the Marais is the traditional Jewish quarter and has many different Jewish restaurants.

I think that Chabads usually have a community seder, but they might be mainly for university students away from home. Nevertheless you might want to contact them to see if they can refer you to any synagogues or community groups that accept guests to sedars. Or your home synagogue might have some connections in Paris.

The modern Jewish area with the largest number of restaurants is along rue Petit in the 19th arrondissement in case any of your investigations mention that area. The Marais is not really an important Jewish area anymore except for tourists.

Well, there are an awful lot of Orthodox students running around Rue de Turenne where we have stayed several times. I think there is a school (yeshiva?) there but not what you would call a lot of Jewish infrastructure away from the touristic Rue des Rosiers.
