Parisians experience two separate terrorist attacks, perpetrated by individuals identified to have connections with militant, radical Islamist groups. The first attack causes 12 deaths (Christians, a Muslim and a Jew) at the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo, a popular-French satirical magazine, known for publishing controversial cartoons about Islam. The second attack is carried out at a Kosher grocery in East Paris, resulting in the deaths of four Jews, all of whom are eventually buried in Israel. Jews in France, who for years have endured growing insecurity, debate again whether immigrating to a safer place in Israel should be an answer to trepidations.
