2019 Annual Assessment

  1. Security threats significantly affect the lives of European Jews.
  2. Jewish communal life is under direct threat.
  3. The participation of Jewish communities in their general societies is reduced.
  4. Because of anti-Semitism and other factors, Europe’s Jewish population is declining.
  5. Local governments could do much more to increase security for Jews.
  6. If nothing is done, a significant number of European Jews will relocate to more inviting environments, some will self-segregate while others decrease their Jewish profile and distance themselves from Jewish communal life.
