      WZO Hosting European Conference on Antisemitism


      The Jerusalem-based World Zionist Organization is hosting a special conference on dealing with Judeo-phobia in France this weekend. Over 150 leaders from the Jewish community will attend the seminars and lectures. "In light of the dramatic and worrying increase in Antisemitic incidents in Europe in general, and in France in particular, we decided to invite representatives of the major Jewish communities across Europe, public figures, and academics, to convene an Emergency Conference on Countering Antisemitism," stated Yaakov Hagoel, the Head of the Department for Activities in Israel and Countering Antisemitism. The conference will begin this Friday in Paris.
