Haïm Korsia (born 23 September 1963, Lyon) is the Chief Rabbi of France. Haïm Korsia was born in Lyon, France, to Sephardi Jewish parents who had immigrated from Algeria.
France’s chief rabbi joined a Muslim and Christian faith leaders in an unusual endorsement of presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron against the nationalist hopeful Marine Le Pen. [...] “Fully aware that our roles require us to be non-partisan, we are, however, first and foremost responsible citizens and therefore openly are calling for a vote in favor of Emmanuel Macron,” the three men wrote.
France’s Chief Rabbi Haim Korsia has said that the country’s Jewish community must seek cooperation with French Muslims against far-right political forces in the country, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday. “It is very important that we work also with the Muslims against National Front,” Korsia said, referring to the populist anti-immigration party led by defeated presidential candidate Marine Le Pen.
