Dozens of senior
European state and city rabbis held a special ceremony this week in
memory of the victims of the Holocaust at the seat of the Council of
Europe in Strasbourg, France.
The event marked
the opening of the meeting of the standing committee of the Conference
of European Rabbis (CER), which was held this time at a particularly
symbolic place and timing – at the Council of Europe building on the day
that the entire Jewish people paused to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust.
