40,000 Jews Have Fled France In 10 Years | The Daily Caller

Around 5,000 French Jews emigrated from the country in 2016 after a series of attacks on the community.

A total of 40,000 Jews have left the country since 2006, according to figures released Monday. A majority of Jews move to Israel, but at least 10 percent return to their home country at a later point. France has the largest Jewish community in Europe with approximately 500,000 residing in the country.

Daniel Benhaim, the head of an Israeli-backed group in France, cited insecurity as the “catalyst” for most people leaving.
