Federation CEO Jason Shames, and Daniel Shlufman, Federation board of trustees secretary, stopped in Paris this week before joining a Federation mission to Israel. The stopover was to show support for the Jews of Paris by shopping at the recently reopened Hyper Cacher, the site of the terrorist attack in January. While there, they spent approximately $1,000 donated by Federation supporters to buy food for needy Jews of Paris and to help Hyper Cacher get back on its feet after having been closed for repairs for months.
