In June 2022 the NJA affiliated to the European Jewish Association (“the EJA”). We did so because we share its objectives exactly.
The EJA is the largest and widest reaching associations of Jewish organizations and communities in Europe, representing thousands of Jews across the continent, with some 80 national and regional affiliated organisations, from Portugal to Ukraine. The NJA is however the sole UK affiliate.
The EJA’s mission is straightforward. It is to strengthen Jewish identity and expand Jewish activities in Europe, as well as to defend Jewish interests in Europe.
Based in Brussels, the EJA has built lasting and meaningful contacts with the key decision makers and opinion formers in the Council, Commission, European Parliament and various permanent representations and embassies. It also works closely with the Mission of Israel to the EU, standing up for Israel, promoting the world’s only Jewish State and creating political initiatives that run against Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS).
