Synagogue de la Paix.

Kollender, first vice-president
of the Jewish community of
Strasbourg.
"The town council of
Strasbourg, elected after the
war, felt they had to show that
they, as official leaders of the
city, were friends to the Jews,"
continues Kollender. "So they
ofered us the ground in the
park to build our synagogue,
even though the park was not
inetnded to be used for any
building."
It was, says Kollender, an
impressive gesture of good
will. "Parks are very precious
to the French people," he ex-
plains. "So this was a very
unusual offer. Deep in our
hearts, we feel this was a debt
that had to be paid to the
Jews of Strasbourg."
The Jews celebrated every
step of the creation of their
new synagogue. When the
first stone was laid, they had
a ceremony. They planted
new trees in the park and
again marked the occasion.
And when their synagogue
was consecrated in 1958, they
celebrated with a gala in-
augural ceremony attended
by France's President Rene
Coty.
Since then, the synagogue
has been visited by numerous
dignitaries, including
General Charles de Gaulle,
Moshe Dayan and Golda
Meir, who came on the eve of
the Yom Kippur War. There,
to appeal for help to the Euro-
pean Council which meets in
Strasbourg, she first visited
the synagogue.
The synagogue is most
visited and cherished by
Strasbourg's Jewish resi-
dents. Shabbat services are
well attended. While the con-
gregants pray in the
beautiful, large sanctuary,
security officers outside guard
the premises, as they do in
other French synagogues
because of recent terrorist
attacks.
Weekdays, members use the
adjoining community center
building for a wide range of

activities. Inside are meeting
rooms, classrooms, a gym-
nasium, kosher restaurant,
library and auditorium used
for a wide range of cultural
programs. The offices are
always full of hardworking
vlunteers, for this is a highly
organized and active
community.
"Yes, it takes many hours of
work — meetings, phone calls,
trips to Paris," says Kollender,
who's also president of the
Jewish National Fund for
Alsace and a dentist by pro-
fession. "Instead of choosing

to be involved in sports or
other activities, we choose to
give our time to the Jewish
community"
Like other Jews here,
Kollender, who was born in
Nancy, in the nearby province
of Lorraine, enjoys life in a ci-
ty that's a blend of tradition
and modernity.
As headquarters of the
European Parliament,
Strasbourg is a worldly city
with sleek contemporary
buildings. But it's also a city
rich with history, one which
celebrated its 2,000th an-
niversary last year. It's a city
of quaint chalet-style houses
which line the banks of the
River Ile, which winds like a
ribbon through the heart of
town.
The Jews in this city reflect
this ancient-modern blend.
Those who have roots in
Alsace and Lorraine have a
history in the region that
dates back to the 12th cen-
tury. But today, this is a
modern community with
diverse groups.
There are Jews from
Eastern Europe; in fact,
Polish-born Jews pray in their
own small shuls. There are
