The Union Libérale Israélite de France (ULIF), commonly referred to as the rue Copernic synagogue, is a Liberal Jewish synagogue, located in Paris, France. Inaugurated on the first of December 1907, it is the oldest Reform synagogue in France.

The synagogue was damaged in a fascist riot in 1941, but was repaired after the war.

Rabbi Louis Germain Levy (1870-1946) trained at the Seminaire Israelite de France served as its first rabbi. Rabbi Levy was succeeded by Rabbi Andre Chalom Zaoui (1916-2009) in 1946.

In 1970, Rabbi Daniel Farhi (1941-2021) was appointed the new senior rabbi and left ULIF in 1977 to create the second Reform synagogue of Paris, Mouvement Juif Liberal de France. Rabbi Michael Williams assumed the spiritual leadership of the community in 1977.

Since 2014, Philippe Haddad (ordained by the Seminaire Israelite de France) and Jonas Jacquelin (ordained by Abraham Geiger Kolleg) are its new rabbinic leaders.
