With the aim of learning about good practices in the field of dialogue and Jewish culture, the AEPJ invites you to be inspired by some of the leading organisations in this field. From now until the beginning of the festival on the first Sunday of September, we will offer you a series of free talks in which we will learn how to do dialogue in depth and with impact.
In this second session of Inspiring Dialogue, which will be held online on Thursday June 17th at 16h CET, you will have the opportunity to learn about the work of House of Religions – Dialogue of Cultures. The House of Religions – Dialogue of Cultures is unique in the world as a place that unifies eight religious communities as well as a space dedicated to the dialogue under one roof.
(Brussels, June 2) Major international Jewish organizations today presented recommendations to combat antisemitism and to foster Jewish life to the European Commission, ahead of the EU’s first-ever strategy to combat Jew-hatred.
The European Jewish Congress (EJC), the World Jewish Congress (WJC), B’nai B’rith International (BBI), the American Jewish Committee Transatlantic Institute (AJC-TAI), The European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS), the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ), the European Union for Progressive Judaism (EUPJ), B’nai B’rith Europe (BBE), and A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe (CEJI) agreed that the European Commission must respond to a dangerous spire in antisemitic attacks.
All the groups recognize and applaud persistent efforts in recent years to curb this age-old scourge and expect the European Commission to widen and deepen its work in the upcoming EU strategy, which was announced by European Commission Vice-President Margaritis Schinas earlier this year.
