Belarus hosting first conference of rabbis of European communities

Belarusian manufacturers will increase the supply of kosher products to Israeli shops. Such agreement was reached in Minsk on November 15.

Belarus is hosting the first conference of rabbis of European communities. The participants pursue not only religious interests. They have achieved a number of agreements on cooperation in education, culture and tourism.

Specific projects were discussed at the meeting of Council of the Republic.

Pinchas Goldschmidt, head of the Conference of European Rabbis:
There are many holy places for Jews in Belarus. If there is a joint interest, from Israel, the West and Belarus, I think, this country looks very promising.

Yuri Kanner, head of Russian Jewish Congress:
For millions of Jews in the world Belarus is one of one of ancestral homes. It is a historical homeland for sufficiently large number of Jewish people today. And I think that together we can give a new impetus to the life of the Jewish community of Belarus.
