Between the two wars, while splits within French jewry were deapening, with the advent of a lot of foreign Jews, French Jews, who were onlooking the status of the jewish world in general, were quite interested by their Italian coreligionists, who indeed appeared to them as the best assimilated of the whole Europe. They made important contact with Italian Jews, whose they praised the model of integration. This article intends to show which influence the increasing opposition between republican France and fascist Italy had on those intercommunity relations.
