(Brussels, March 27, 2023) – The European Jewish Congress expresses its deep concern at the latest developments in Israel and calls upon all sections of Israeli society to restore calm and dialogue.
Committed to the security and prosperity of the Jewish state based upon the values enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, the EJC, representing the national Jewish umbrella organisations of more than 40 European countries, call upon the government of Israel to immediately suspend proposed legislation on judicial reform.
The Jewish State is dear to all our hearts, as is the eternal unity of the Jewish People. It pains us all to witness such division, which can only provide succour to the enemies of Israel and the Jewish People.
It is our duty and responsibility to request from all our brothers and sisters, of whatever political hue, to stop the division now and return to dialogue before it is too late.
