French Jewish leader laments ‘climate of anti-Semitism’

On the 70th anniversary of the French Jewish umbrella body CRIF, its leader Roger Cukiermanlashed out at both extreme-left and extreme-right parties, accusing them of fostering anti-Semitism.

WJC, The deadly shooting at Toulouse Jewish school in 2012 was a 'national tragedy' according to President Sarkozy
The French Jewish umbrella organization CRIFis celebrating the 70 years of its existence. A delegation by Jewish leaders led by World Jewish Congress Vice-President RogerCukierman, who heads the CRIF, was receivedon Monday in Paris by French PresidentFrançois Hollande.
In a series of interviews, Cukierman lamented a “climate of anti-Semitism” in France and singled out both extreme-right and extreme-left parties for contributing in different ways to increase resentment against Jews. He slammed the anti-Zionist attitude of the Leftist Front, an alliance of Socialist and Communist parties, and the fact that far-right leader Marine Le Pen had never distanced herself from controversial statements made by her father, the former National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, who once called the Nazi gas chambers “a detail of the history of World War II.”
“Behind the National Front stand all the anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers,” Cukierman said in an interview with ‘RTL Radio’.
He also attacked the comedian Dieudonné, an outspoken supporter for the National Front, as an “anti-Semitism professional” who was using his reputation to “fabricate and disseminate anti-Semitism. That is very worrying,” the CRIF president said.
Receiving the CRIF delegation at the Elysée Palace, President Hollande said he understood the special bond of French Jews with Israel, which was “natural”. He also said that “France needs its Jews.”

Is Your Jewish School Really Safe?

Is Your Jewish School Really Safe?



I want to inform you of a critical major initiative by the Chesed Fund Limited and Project Ezra of Greater Baltimore for Jewish schools throughout North America. A vital new guide, entitled Keep Your School Safe (KYSS), (KYSS) has been sent to all Jewish Schools, major organizations and is en route to all camps.

 

   Parents and community members can read and print the free KYSS guide now at www.keepyourschoolsafe.com. The guide helps schools conduct a thorough security review to help them carefully evaluate and improve school safety. 

    The Keep Your School Safe guide includes sections on protection of school grounds, lockdown procedures, proper safety and security training for the teachers and staff, and other emergency preparedness measures. Keep Your School Safe has been recommended by organizations such as the Secure Community Network, Agudath Israel of America, National Council of Young Israel, Torah Umesorah and the Orthodox Union as an essential safety and security resource.  

   The initial print run of the KYSS guide is ten thousand copies. KYSS is intended for all Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Community Day schools.  A similar guide is being prepared for all public and private schools throughout North America.

   As a Security Consultant, Coordinator for CERT (the Community Emergency Response Team in Northern Park Heights, Baltimore) and an expert in security for over thirty-five years I felt that the Jewish community needs no further wake-up call than the tragedy last December in Newtown, CT; it is imperative to review and tighten school safety and security measures. 

   This guide is published in memory of the faculty and students of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, as well as the victims of the Boston Marathon terror attack.
