Briefing on Crisis in France with CRIF President Roger Cukierman

WHEN
Wednesday, January 28, 2015, 11:00am – 12:00pm EST

In the wake of the recent tragedies at Charlie Hebdo and the Hypercacher Kosher market in Paris, tensions in Jewish communities across Europe and the world have reached new heights. The terrorists who carried out these barbaric acts not only attacked freedom and democracy, but they also targeted Jewish values. While more and more details of wider-ranging plots continue to emerge, and Jews across the region are faced with a terrifying new reality, the French Jewish community is fortunate to have a strong and healthy infrastructure.

Join us for a conference call with Roger Cukierman, president of Conseil Représentatif des Institutions juives de France (CRIF), the leading umbrella organization of the French Jewish community, for an exclusive briefing on the latest developments on the situation on the ground, and CRIF’s response to the ongoing crisis. Roger has agreed to take time out of his incredibly busy schedule to join us, so this truly is a unique opportunity.

Also on the call will be Dorothy Tananbaum, JFN Board Co-Chair, who will introduce Roger, Andres Spokoiny, JFN President, who will provide some JFN context, and Sonia Cummings, JFN Board member and trustee of The Nathan Cummings Foundation, who will moderate Q&A.
