On the occasion of an AIPAC Gala Dinner, EJC President Dr. Moshe Kantor was honoured to meet with Czech President Miloš Zeman.

Amongst topics discussed was the Ceremony of Unveiling of the Terezin Monument that took place on Monday, 4 June 2018. EJC and its President offered the Monument to the Terezin Memorial in memory of all victims of the Shoah. This monument includes a big rock, generally referred to as the “Jewish Stone”.

During the meeting, Dr. Kantor gave President Zeman a polished piece of this rock, as a symbolic gesture.

President Zeman thanked the EJC for their long lasting friendship and reaffirmed his support for Czech Jewry, Europe’s Jewish communities and the Jewish State.

EJC Executive Vice-President Raya Kalenova and Director of EU Affairs, Nuno Wahnon Martins, were invited alongside President Kantor to join the delegation of AIPAC for their event in the Prague Castle.

The dinner brought together prominent friends of Israel from the United States, the Czech government and diplomats. The event was part of the programme of AIPAC’s Minyan delegation to Central and Eastern Europe.
