ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE CENTRAL BOARD OF JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN GREECE FOR THE TERROR ATTACK IN JERUSALEM Print E-mail
Tuesday, 23 November 2021 08:51
 The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece unequivocally condemns the new terror attack in Jerusalem’s Old City which caused the death of two Israelis and the injury of other two. Every terror attack against innocent citizens of Israel moves away the hope of peace and threatens every attempt of harmonious co-existance between Israelis and Palestinians in the region.  

We express our sorrow and we convey our condolences to the families of the victims and the people of Israel.

KIS CONDEMS VANDALISM OF THE JEWISH MONUMENT IN THE UNIVERSITY OF THESSALONIKI Print E-mail
Thursday, 29 December 2022 14:31
The Monument dedicated to the Jewish cemetery situated in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki was once more target of hideous vandalism. A swastika was sprayed on the grave that symbolizes the sacredness of the Jewish cemetery -one of the oldest in Europe- which was destroyed in 1942 by the Nazis and their collaborators, as well as the annihilation of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki, the largest in Greece, during the Holocaust. The marble dedication of the Monument was also desecrated with a fascist symbol.

With the stain of the horrific Nazi swastika and a fascist-inspired graffiti we bid farewell to 2022, a year during which no incidents of vandalism of Jewish sites were registered in Greece. We condemn the unholy act of the vandals, followers of intolerance and antisemitism that express their hatred and fanaticism through the profanation of the memory of the Salonican Jews. No tolerance to antisemitism!

We call on the Law enforcement authorities to be mobilized in order to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to Justice.

THE GREEK JEWRY CONGRATULATES ARIS FC AND MACCABI HAIFA FC Print E-mail
Monday, 05 December 2022 13:24
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.

VANDALISM OF THE MURAL DEDICATED TO THE DEPORTATION TO THE JEWS OF THESSALONIKI Print E-mail
Wednesday, 11 January 2023 14:34

Vandal antisemites roam freely and stain undisturbed any attempt to preserve Holocaust memory in Thessaloniki.

For the second time, the mural commemorating the deportation of the Jews of Thessaloniki to the German extermination camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau, which was created by the "Vardaris Neighborhood Group" and adorns the surrounding wall of the new railway station of Thessaloniki, with views from the pre-war and occupation periods of Thessaloniki, was vandalized.

This time the nostalgics of Nazism declared their intentions and anti-Jewish hatred with swastikas and fascist symbols.

This is the second anti-Semitic incident in a few days, after the desecration of the Monument dedicated to the old Jewish cemetery of Thessaloniki at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

FRIENDLY FOOTBALL GAME between ARIS & MACCABI HAIFA: THE PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM of GREECE IN THESSALONIKI Print E-mail
Monday, 28 November 2022 12:18

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.
