EJC Executive Vice-President and CEO Raya Kalenova introduced academics and experts to the work of the EJC in the field of advocacy, which covers a broad range of issues such as protecting religious freedoms, ensuring the commemoration of the Shoah and fighting antisemitism in all its forms: “Our communities face very diverse challenges, from security issues and attacks on fundamental freedoms to antisemitism, which comes from the far right, the far left and from radical Islam. As such, they need a strong voice, a voice that is heard and respected, and most importantly, an effective voice,” she stated, emphasising the need for a thorough follow-up after the successful adoption of the Resolution on Antisemitism on 1 June 2017 by the European Parliament.
