A wake-up call on antisemitism

News of the shocking and tragic events of the May 24th shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels will have escaped no one. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. We have serious concerns regarding the backdrop to this hate crime: the recent European parliament elections saw 77 new MEPs from xenophobic parties, up 50% from five years ago. The attack was a stark and symbolic reminder of what is at stake for social cohesion in the European Union project. Read CEJI’s letter and quotes in The Guardian, JTA, Panorama, Jewish News UK, Jewish Daily Forward, Cleveland Jewish News and on the CEJI website.

Members of ENORB visited the Jewish Museum in Brussels on Wednesday 18 June after the Annual Meeting – news of this will be posted on the blog.
