European Jews at the Crossroads

Matanel Foundation

In February 2016, the 2nd Matanel Think Tank met in Pomezia, Italy to discuss the future of European Jewry. The attendees, professional or laypersons, serve their communities in the areas of research, planning, or rabbinical and educational guidance. Representing more than ten European countries, and diverse cultural backgrounds and religious denominations, they express a variety of points of view regarding the issues on the agenda of the Jewish people. This Matanel Paper makes available to the vast public a summary of the debates and the conclusions.

The Saying of Matanel

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?

Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14
