SYNAGOGUES IN TROYES, FRANCE:

One of history’s greatest Torah and Talmud commentators, Rabbi Solomon ben Isaac, known by the acronym Rashi (1040–1105), was born, lived, and taught here. (During the first Crusade, Rashi was forced to flee anti-Jewish riots. He returned to Worms, Germany, where he had first studied. He remained there until his death.) Rashi’s grandson, the noted Jewish scholar known as Rabbenu Tam (1100–1171) also taught in Troyes and attracted students from all over Europe. Historians believe that the St-Frobert quarter was the Jewish quarter. Nothing remains of the medieval Jewish community that, although very small in size, made a huge contribution to Judaism.
