Jewry is threatened by both Islam and Extreme Rightists: Europe has Lost 600,000 Jews in a Decade

R Goldschmidt

"As a European Jew, I, like everyone else, cannot help asking if we have a future in Europe." These were the words of the president of the Conference of European Rabbis (CER) and Chief Rabbi of Moscow, HaRav Pinchos Goldschmidt, speaking at a panel discussion in the European Parliament looking at the current situation of Antisemitism in Europe and the future prospects for Europe’s Jewish communities. The Conference was held in the European Parliament amidst reports of a continuing rise in Antisemitism across Europe and was hosted by EP President Martin Schulz and First Vice-President Antonio Tajani in the European Parliament.


The Kippa Parade

Which kippot did world leaders choose to wear at Peres' funeral — and who refrained from this gesture?

The same question arose many years ago at the funeral of Rabin which was attended by a roster of world leaders; it was repeated now, at Peres' funeral. It should be noted that wearing a head covering was not required in the least but each one made this decision on his own in order to show respect to the Jewish leader. The non-Jewish world leaders did so out of their own free will while some MK's —admittedly not many — also out of their own free will, refrained from putting on a kippa.

Luxuries may abound, but menuchas hanefesh is in short supply. Chazal say, "Menuchoh, this is Torah" (Midrash Tanchuma, Parshas Vayechi 11). Only Torah can bring menuchoh to our lives, to our marriages and to the world. This happens because Torah enables us to trust in Hashem.
