THE GREEK JEWRY CONGRATULATES ARIS FC AND MACCABI HAIFA FC
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece congratulates the football clubs of Aris, Thessaloniki, and Maccabi Haifa on the dynamic message against intolerance and antisemitism sent from the “Vikelidis” stadium during the friendly match of December 4, 2022.

The Greek Jewry welcomes the decision of both teams to donate all the proceeds of the match for the erection of the Holocaust Museum of Greece, in Thessaloniki. This is a meaningful action, an initiative in the memory of the 50.000 Jews of Thessaloniki murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators in the German death camps.

The two teams demonstrated their strong commitment to fostering solidarity and mutual respect in the stadiums, in sports and in society at large. Their example shows the way in the struggle against fanaticism, antisemitism and violence.

FRIENDLY FOOTBALL GAME between ARIS & MACCABI HAIFA: THE PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM of GREECE IN THESSALONIKI

On Sunday, December 4th, 2022 the football club of Thessaloniki “ARIS” welcomes to "Kleanthis Vikelidis" Stadium (18.30) the Israeli Champion, Maccabi Haifa F.C., in a charity international friendly football game.

It will not, however, be an... ordinary football game. It is a very good opportunity, ARIS F.C. to remind and keep unquenchable in the thoughts of all of us, issues greater than football that concern everybody.

The game against Maccabi Haifa F.C. has a significant symbolism, perhaps more relevant than ever.

We hope that this Greek-Israeli football game will be able to raise awareness of and educate younger generations about the Holocaust Remembrance and the fight against antisemitism, racism, discrimination, and social exclusions.

All the proceeds from the football game will be donated to support the completion of the new Holocaust Museum of Greece, in Thessaloniki.

We share the pain of the family than mourns the loss of a 16-year old young boy and we wish to the dozens of wounded a speedy recovery.

We stand by the Israeli citizens who deal with the threat of terror attacks in their everyday life and we he hope that prudence will prevail, and a solution will be reached that will ultimately put an end to the bloodshed of the innocent.

 The President of the Jewish Community of Ioannina, Dr. Moses Elisaf, medicine professor at the local university as well as town councilor, urged local authorities to take measures for the arrest of the perpetrators and called upon his fellow-citizens to condemn these violent anti-Semitic attacks.
