European Forum on Anti-Semitism to Convene in Berlin

The AJC and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation are holding the ninth European Forum on Anti-Semitism in Berlin at the beginning of February. Of special concern is the rise to power of right-wing groups and the challenges this poses to European Jewish communities. The personal representative responsible for battling anti-Semitism of the chair of the OSCE is to speak at the forum. Also to attend is LJC chairwoman Faina Kukliansky, with a meeting scheduled with Rabbi Andrew Baker, AJC international affairs director responsible for relations with all Diaspora Jewish communities. Kukliansky and Baker are the co-chairs of the Goodwill Foundation as well and are expected to discuss the upcoming meeting of that organization in Vilnius.
