■ French Ambassador Patrick Maisonnave, who took up his post last year after the celebration of the French national holiday, and is next week hosting his first Bastille Day reception, is opening up the festivities to a wider public at the French residence in Jaffa.

His predecessors used to host a reception for Israeli dignitaries, members of the diplomatic community, religious leaders and several representatives of the French community in Israel late in the afternoon, and after the official proceedings would continue with a late-night party for the larger French community and Francophiles.
