NEWS - News of B'nai B'rith

Dear Sisters, Dear Brothers

On behalf of the Executive Committee of B'nai B'rith Europe I send you and your families my best wishes for a Joyful and Healthy Pesach.

Throughout the world, but particularly in Israel and in certain countries of Europe, Jews are facing difficult problems. In Israel our sisters and brothers are seeing an increased level of terrorist activity with tragic loss of life. In Europe anti-Semitism is on the rise, emanating from Islamist extremists, from far right groups, as well as from the far left, and often in the guise of anti-Zionism. Let us remember that Pesach is a festival which celebrates the Exodus from slavery to freedom, which brought our people to the land of Israel, one of the most advanced liberal economies of the world, a country whose constitution respects the rights of ALL its citizens.

Pesach is also a festival of renewal, so allow me to invite you all to renew your efforts in supporting the aims and principles of B'nai B'rith to achieve Benevolence, Brotherly and Sisterly Love and Harmony. Our work in Europe can only succeed if we move forward as a united and harmonious group.

Chag Pesach Vesameach
