Jewish 'Pilgrims' Find
Paris' Famous Deli

ROBERT LASSON

Special to The Jewish News -

F

or more than six cen-
turies the Marais sec-
tion of Paris' Right
Bank has housed a Jewish
community. The former Place
des Juifs is now called Place
Saint Paul, as is the Metro
stop that serves this fascinat-
ing neighborhood of crooked
little streets, closet-sized
bookshops, kosher butchers
and unmarked synagogues
whose presence becomes
known only by the parades of
men on their way to prayer
twice a day.
Close to Marais' heart — or
certainly its kishka — is Jo
Goldenberg's delicatessen-
restaurant, which attracts
patrons from every continent
on earth. For years, 7 rue des
Rosiers was known to Euro-
pean and North African Jews
as a place to enjoy a helping of
moussaka or a plate of gefilte
fish. But on the afternoon of
Aug. 9, 1982, Goldenberg's
made front-page news all over
the world.
That day, Arab terrorists
burst into the restaurant at
the height of the lunch hour,
threw grenades and fired
automatic weapons, killing six
customers and wounding 23.
"For a full year," said Gol-
denberg, "business was com-
pletely dead. I was faced with
a choice. The French govern-

ment indemnifies businesses
that suffer from terrorist acts.
I was offered a substantial
sum of money if I wanted to
close up shop. But I didn't
want to close. First, because I
am a very proud man. Second,
if I closed, it would mean that
the terrorists had won. This I
could not allow."
So Jo Goldenberg did what
he learned during the Occupa-
tion when, as a young boy, he
lived for four years with false
papers: he survived. The busi-
ness survived, too — and pros-
pered.

Today you need reservations
if you wish to dine chez Gol-
denberg. The ambiance will
not leave you gasping for ad-
jectives. The front of the store
looks like any other Jewish
deli: ceiling-hung salami sus-
pended like stalactites,
mounds of rich black bread, re-
frigerated cases with corned
beef, pastrami, goose salami
and other meychels de la
maison, all made at a
Goldenberg-owned factory
under the proprietor's close
supervision. The luscious des-
serts — cheesecake, baklava,
poppyseed cake — are baked
on the premises.
In recent years, Golden-
berg's has become — you
should pardon the expression
— a Mecca for Jewish tourists
from all over the world. Says le
patron: "People who left
France before the Occupation
come here and weep as they
eat. They rediscover their
childhood in a plate of borscht,
their Yiddishkeit in a piece of
my gefilte fish. People from
China and Japan come here as
