FIRST e-SUMMIT
OF EUROPEAN JEWISH LEADERS

BE READY TO BE AMAZED

  • 21-22-23 November
  •   2020
  • Online Edition

THE ONLY CHANCE TO

Join other European Jewish leaders

Come and discuss the challenges your community or organisation is facing due to COVID

YOU CANNOT MISS IT WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN THE e-SUMMIT?

The e-Summit is addressed to presidents, board members, volunteers and professionals from Jewish communities, national Federations, regional organisations, foundations, cultural and sport associations, Jewish museums, grassroots organisations and innovative Jewish ventures from across Europe.

The e-Summit will start on Saturday, November 21st at 18.00 and will conclude on Monday, November 23rd at 14.00 hours. During all that time, we will offer the most innovative and relevant programme, including plenary sessions, parallel sessions, group discussions, guided tours to European cities, presentation of innovative solutions, supporting communities’ challenges, etc.

In a very particular year where COVID has shown the force of its impact, Jewish Community life thrives.

With no travel and government regulations on lockdowns and isolation worked as catalysts for a new reality: social, financial and of course impacting our Jewish life in Europe.

We believe that now more than ever, we need a space to discover how many communities used this challenge as an opportunity to change direction, pivot and grow.

JOIN US IN THE LARGEST JEWISH EVENT OF 2020

Stay or leave? Can Jewish life effectively protected in Europe?

Stay or leave? Can Jewish life effectively protected in Europe?

Conference of European Rabbis - CER

For years, anti-Semitic prejudice, hate crime and violence have been on the rise in the European Union - digitally or physically. Meanwhile, Belgium, Denmark and Poland have either proposed bans or actually banned ritual slaughter. In Iceland, Denmark and Norway, a furore has erupted over circumcision. Everywhere in Europe, Jewish religious practice is severely under threat. Now, more than ever before, it must be made clear that the security of religious communities is meaningless without the freedom to practice religious life. The importance of protecting Jewish life in Europe is of the utmost importance within today’s political and social climate. If the future of Jewish life in Europe is not to be called into question, action must be taken now. This panel will debate, how the future of Jewish life in Europe and religious freedom can practically be protected and preserved.
 
Guiding questions:
  • How Europe will practically safeguard and promote the fundamental right of religious freedom in the future and regain trust within the religious communities? Are Jews in Europe forced to become vegetarians?
  • Will Europe bare its teeth? How to take the combat against off- and online hate crime to the next level?
  • How can Jewish life effectively and sustainably be protected and the fundamental right of religious freedom promoted and guaranteed?
