Il New York Post ci informa, in un articolo del 21 gennaio, che Michel Emsalem, fondatore della catena alimentare kosher Hyper Cacher, ha trasferito la propria famiglia a New York nell'aprile dello scorso anno. All'origine di tale decisione, secondo la moglie Dinah Emsalem, il fatto che la Francia non sarebbe più da tempo un Paese sicuro per gli ebrei. Nello stesso articolo la moglie rivela però anche un altro particolare interessante: per coincidenza, il marito ha ceduto la propria partecipazione nell'Hyper Cacher proprio alla vigilia della presa degli ostaggi nel supermercato del 9 gennaio, mantenendo però ancora temporaneamente la funzione di CEO:

Kosher Market CEO sent family to NYC over anti-semitism in Paris

The deadly terror attack on a kosher market in Paris has its CEO considering a move to Manhattan — where his wife and kids relocated last year to escape surging anti-Semitism in their native country.
Michel Emsalem, who founded the French Hyper Cacher grocery chain, said Tuesday that his two teenage daughters “are much more secure in New York” and that he’s thinking of joining them and their mom.
“God bless America,” Emsalem said in broken English during an appearance with Mayor de Blasio at a memorial outside his shuttered store. “We can see the support of America against all of these terrible acts and [for] the Jewish community. It’s a big support.”
Emsalem’s wife, who has been living in an Upper East Side rental since April, said she jumped at the chance to work in Manhattan due to worries about attacks in Paris.
Dinah Emsalem said the Jan. 9 murders of three shoppers and a Hyper Cacher worker by a terrorist “confirmed to me that my fears were real and justified.”
“I had expected that to happen for some time,” she said. “I had warned [my husband] and I had warned my family.”
Dinah, 43, said she, her husband and kids had already applied for immigration green cards and that she went online a day after the supermarket massacre to re-enroll daughters Rebecca, 14, and Sarah, 16, in the private Lycée Français de New York for next year.
“We don’t feel protected and welcome in France,” she said.
Dinah — who is COO of North American operations for the French fashion firm Sandro, Maje, Claudie Pierlot — said she and her girls have been “quite happy” since moving to New York. “I think the United States is much more open to diversity, and we feel much more comfortable,” she said.
Dinah also said she was hopeful that Michel, 50, could join them full-time, rather than just visiting for a week at a time every month or so. But while Michel said he coincidentally sold his stake of Hyper Cacher a day before the attack, he retained the titles of CEO and president and Dinah said “he has to get himself organized” before making a move.
She also noted that they both have elderly parents in France.
“It’s not a decision at this stage,” she said. “It’s more an option that we have been considering and are more considering now.”
Paris Deputy Mayor Patrick Klugman was overheard telling de Blasio that New York is the new promised land for disaffected French Jews.
“The Jews used to say, ‘Next year in Jerusalem.’ Now we say, ‘Next year in New York,’ ” Klugman said.

Panamza ci informa inoltre che la controllante della catena di supermercati è "Hyper Hide", una SAS. Hyper Cacher Vincennes è di proprietà dello stesso azionista unico, Michel Emsalem.
Sempre secondo Panamza, la decisione della vendita dell'attività potrebbe essere in realtà legata al fatto che la catena alimentare kosher era da tempo in perdita a causa della forte immigrazione di ebrei francesi verso Israele in corso negli ultimi anni.
