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.

In addition to the printing of CEJI articles related to the May 24th shooting in Brussels, CEJI’s work has also been highlighted in Turkish newspaper TAKA, and an interview on Radio Judaica Strasbourg.
 

Facing Facts! rolled out in Serbia

Recently, in Budapest - as part of our Facing Facts! project - we trained 23 individuals from 13 different countries on how to monitor hate crimes and on how to replicate the training locally with other organisations. We have already received positive feedback on our training materials which have led to a recent training course in Novi Sad for local CSOs and an upcoming one in Belgrade. Furthermore CEJI and Facing Facts! have been thanked in the Federation of Jewish Communities of Hungary's recent report on antisemitism.
