The Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot has unveiled an initiative prepared by the UAE in cooperation with the Conference of Jewish Rabbis in Europe to combat anti-Semitism and hate crimes in Europe and around the world.
Rabbi Pinhas Goldschmidt, head of the Organization of Rabbis in Europe, praised the UAE initiative, which he described as historic, and said it represented a turning point in the fight against anti-Jewishism.
Work on the plan was launched last week at a conference in Moscow that brought together religious figures from around the world and discussed ways to fight hate crimes and anti-Semitism in their countries.
The religious leaders who took part in the conference agreed to hold a second conference in November to sign an agreement to end violence and anti-Semitism in their communities.
Goldschmidt explained that Russia was chosen to hold the first conference to launch the UAE-Jewish initiative because of its peaceful coexistence between different religions.
He hoped that those efforts would contribute to the elimination of anti-Semitism in Europe. "I am glad that representatives of different organizations and communities participated in the discussion of these issues, because that would help us fight xenophobia against foreigners. Anti-Semitism. "
