Rabbi Menachem Margolin, Director General of the Rabbinical Center of Europe said Sunday that assimilation is the main problem facing European Jewish communities. He said that one of the causes for assimilation is fear, which is a consequence of the Holocaust. “People are not proud to be Jewish and they are also scared to be Jewish,” he said.
