OUR OBJECTIVES The EJC addresses the many challenges currently faced by European Jewry. EJC’s agenda has evolved since its establishment in response to the broad diversity of Jewish communities within Europe. However, in spite of their cultural differences and heterogeneous historic backgrounds, EJC’s members share common needs and interests, which in turn become EJC’s primary objectives.
