President François Hollande and the upper crust of the French establishment flocked to be seen on March 20 at the annual gala dinner of the Conseil Representatif des Institutions Juives de France (CRIF), the umbrella body for France’s 600,000-strong Jewish community, Europe’s largest.

Hollande was accompanied by 11 serving cabinet ministers, while dozens of former ministers, serving parliamentarians, business and religious leaders made up half of the 900 guests. The other half comprised prominent French Jews.
