    More than 5,000 French Jews are on track to leave for Israel this year, the most since after the Six-Day War in 1967.

    France has the world’s third-largest Jewish population after Israel and the U.S. – about 500,000.

    French Jews “are finding themselves between the extreme right of Europe and the radical Islam of Europe,” said Ariel Kandel, who runs the Jewish Agency for Israel in Paris.
