Wednesday, 19 November 2014 14:13
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the Greek Jewry’s repudiation and outrage for the latest inhuman, bloody and murderous attack burst out by Palestinian terrorists on November 18, against worshipers while praying in the Kehillat BneiTorah Synagogue, in Har Nof district, in Western Jerusalem. This terrorist attack with guns, meat cleavers and axes, resulted into a bloodbath which left behind five dead and 12 wounded.
 
We share the grief and participate in the mourning of the families of the victims and the people of Israel.

It is only by building bridges on the sacred principle of the value of life that logic will prevail in order to continue the peace process in the suffering Middle East region.
We join our voice with the world Jewry in stressing that: “Houses of worship anywhere in the world must be sacrosanct. Whoever attacks peaceful worshipers in a synagogue, a mosque or a church is nothing but a despicable criminal.”

In resolutions, theWJC called on Germany to uphold a ban on the printing and sale of Hitler’s book ‘Mein Kampf’ and urged Europe to step up the fight against anti-Semitism. On Sunday the delegates and guests also took part in a rally organized by the Central Council of Jews in Germany at the Brandenburg Gate, where Chancellor Angela Merkel, Central Council President Dieter Graumann and WJC President Ronald S. Lauder were among the keynote speakers.

At the Gleis 17 memorial at Grunewald train station, from where the trains bringing Berlin Jews to the Nazi death camps departed during World War II, WJC Holocaust Memory Commissioner Charlotte Knobloch, 81, (photo) was moved to tears as she recalled her own experience during World War II and said: “We will not forget. Not us. The legacy of these six million people is our task, it is our obligation to fight for these people, for their remembrance, and for our rights here and now.”

Monday, 15 September 2014 11:34
Judaism is an integral part of Germany's identity, Chancellor Angela Merkel told thousands at a rally against anti-Semitism near Berlin's iconic Brandenburg Gate on Sunday. "Jewish life belongs among us. It is a part of our identity," Merkel said, adding that the anti-Semitic abuse earlier this year had been appalling. The rally was organized amid shock in Germany at crude anti-Semitic slogans shouted during summer protests against Israel's military offensive in the Gaza Strip. Here is the address by Ronald S. Lauder, President of the World Jewish Congress.
For the last 70 years, Jews and Germans have lived together in peace. Jews have prospered as Germany has prospered. Jews have become part of German society again. We are your neighbors and your friends. We all share the same values, we hold the same beliefs.

June 26, 2014 – Brussels: Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras addressed an AJC Transatlantic Institute dinner last night. While acknowledging the immense challenges facing his country since 2008, including nearly 60 percent youth unemployment, he presented a generally optimistic outlook for Greece.
