The underground is really easy to use. You will find the museum of jewish art and history at "Rambuteau" or "Hôtel de ville" stations. The MAHJ displays one of the most beautiful and oldest jewish collection, with paintings of Chagall, contemporary artists, a Magnasco painting, etc.and you will learn a lot about Jews in French history.
