In an Arutz Sheva interview Sunday, Rabbi Michoel Rosenblum, Director of EU Jewish Buildings, summed up the financial effects of the newly emergent European anti-Semitism by saying that “it's not cheap to be a Jew in Europe.”

"The exorbitant costs of security, besides the regular functions of a Jewish organization today – you're taxed with another 30-40% of just wasting time with security and financing and all of that,” Rabbi Rosenblum explained.

The rabbi spoke to Arutz Sheva at the Rabbinical Center of Europe conference in Budapest, Hungary.
