EJC President Dr. Moshe Kantor has expressed great concern over the results of the FRA report “Young Jewish Europeans: perceptions and experiences of antisemitism.”
The study, at the initiative of the European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS), critically records the experience of antisemitism among young European Jews, who are all too often the target of anti-Jewish hate.
EJC has called comments by Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki saying that to pay restitution to Jews who survived the Holocaust would equate to “Hitler’s victory after his death” a major distortion.
The EJC, represented by Mike Whine MBE, took part in a round table discussion with UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief Dr Ahmed Shaheed organised by the Parliamentary Committee Against Antisemitism and the Antisemitism Policy Trust.
The EJC attended the first meeting of the working group on the implementation of the Council Declaration on the fight against antisemitism and the development of a common security approach to better protect Jewish communities and institutions in Europe.
EJC President Dr. Moshe Kantor met with His Eminence Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State of His Holiness the Pope, on 2 May 2019 in the Vatican, in the framework of dialogue and common initiatives between the European Jewish Congress, the Catholic Church and the Holy See.
EJC attended the conference “‘Living together’ in the 21th Century, being a Jew in Islamic Land: the case of Morocco”, which was held at the Belgian Senate on 23 April 2019.
Based in Brussels, the European Jewish Congress is the representative umbrella organisation of national Jewish communities. It federates democratically elected national Jewish community organisations in over 40 European countries uniting 2.5 million Jews across the continent.
