"We are very much resolute in continuing to live out our Jewish faith. We will continue to go to the synagogues, to kosher butchers, to kosher grocery shops. We will keep on living normally because we must not surrender to violence. And we will demonstrate, with the entire French nation, our solidarity during this afternoon's massive march that ought to bring together all of the French people."

14. SOUNDBITE (French) Joel Mergui, President of Central French Jewish Council:
"Yesterday, by the Hyper Cacher supermarket, we heard fellow Jews tell the Prime Minister (Valls) and Interior Minister (Cazeneuve) with great emotion, that Jews are afraid. It is very painful for us representatives of the Jewish Community, to hear that in 2015, in France, in one of the world's greatest democracies, that Jews could be afraid."

16. SOUNDBITE (French) Joel Mergui, President of Central French Jewish Council:
"It is also essential for us that we are able to feel, during today's massive demonstration for the Republic (of France), that in addition to 'I am Charlie', that all Jews have been chanting since the journalists were assassinated, that we also hear, in the same way, 'I am a policeman' and 'I am Jewish'."

Members of France's Jewish community met with President Francois Hollande on Sunday, ahead of a massive unity rally in Paris which is expected to involved hundreds of thousands of people.
The rally on Sunday is a huge security challenge for a nation on alert for more violence, after 17 people and three gunmen were killed over three days of attacks on a satirical newspaper, a kosher supermarket and on police.
The President of the Council of Jewish Institutions in France Roger Cukierman called for "strong measures" as he arrived at the Elysee presidential palace for the meeting, saying the situation France has found itself in is a "war."
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls and Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve took part in the meeting.
Both Valls and Cazeneuve also attended a vigil outside the 'Hyper Cache' kosher supermarket on Saturday night, attended by thousands, in honour of the four hostages killed when gunman Amedy Coulibaly attacked the market on Friday.
Coulibaly took over the kosher supermarket, demanding freedom for the two brothers who carried out the massacre at the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
At the time, the brothers were trapped in a printing house near Charles de Gaulle airport.
All three men were killed in nearly simultaneous raids by security forces.
Unity against extremism is the overriding message for Sunday's rally.
Among the expected attendees are the Israeli Prime Minister and the Palestinian President, the Ukrainian President and Russian Foreign Minister, the leaders of Britain, Germany, NATO, the Arab League and African nations.
And the French masses, from across the political and religious spectrum.
