France - The Zadoc Kahn Lodge in Paris Print E-mail

This Lodge was established in 1966.

Zadoc Kahn was born in 1835 and became Chief Rabbi of Paris, before being appointed as Chief Rabbi of the Central Consistory of France in 1889.

He promoted Baron Edmond de Rothschild's colonisation of Palestine and encouraged the work of the Société des Etudes Juives and the Revue des Etudes Juives.

He published a famous collection of sermons. His older son, head solicitor's clerk at the Cahen law firm, was the person who recognised Esterhazy's writing on the famous document in the Dreyfus affair.

Zadoc Kahn died in 1905, just before the Act separating Church and State came into force.
