Mission participants visited the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket where four Jews were killed in January, and they met one of the women held hostage during the attack and the police officer who secured her release. They also met with the editor-in-chief of Charlie Hebdo, the Israeli and U.S. ambassadors to France and France’s Chief Rabbi, and they received briefings from security experts and the French Jewish community leadership.
