Combating Antisemitism

Antisemitism is worryingly on the rise in Europe. On the initiative of the city of Dortmund in 2021 ECCAR established a Working Group on antisemitism and fostering Jewish life.

A central foundation of the work is the “EU Strategy on combating antisemitism and fostering Jewish life” (2021 - 2030). To learn more you can contact
