about us

Over 25 years ago, European Jewish communities decided to merge their activities and unite their efforts. The European Jewish Congress (EJC) was officially established as a new and independent structure in 1986. Previously, European Jewish issues were dealt with by the European branch of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), first based in London, before moving to Paris in 1980. The EJC is today the regional affiliate of the WJC.
