A.J.C. ASSISTANCE TO GREEK HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS Print E-mail
Wednesday, 29 February 2012 13:00
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece and the American Jewish Committee share and continue a productive cooperation for more than two decades.
In the course of these years, in a vast scale of issues and on various occasions the AJC has repeatedly assisted the Greek Jewry.
Once more, in the past few months, the AJC has actively demonstrated its solidarity through two important support programmes offered during this difficult period when the consequences of the financial crisis have greatly afflicted Greek Jewish Communities, organizations and people.  The most recent donation of the AJC was made following David Harris’ visit to Greece and it includes the sum of 48.000 USD to be distributed to the survivors of the Nazi concentration camps in Greece, who are the most needy and delicate part of our Community. In January, AJC Executive Director David Harris headed a delegation that visited Athens and Thessaloniki. D. Harris met with top Greek officials and Jewish leaders and spoke at the annual Holocaust remembrance ceremony in Thessaloniki (photo).

ANNOUNCEMENT on LAOS MPs JOINING the ND PARTY Print E-mail
Friday, 17 February 2012 14:59

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the Greek Jewry’s concern and surprise for the fact that two MPs, M. Voridis and A. Georgiadis,  recently expelled from the LAOS party, have joined the party of “New Democracy” (ND). In the past these MPs have expressed or associated themselves with insulting anti-Jewish views.

We hope that the leadership of  “New Democracy”, which is a leading Greek party, will take all necessary measures so that such views remain at the margins of the Greek society, and will safeguard the equality of all citizens regardless of race or religion, as provided for by the Constitution.

The Greek Jewry also believes that the same policy against racism and anti-Semitism, as endorsed by all democratic Greek and European parties, will continue.
