The EJF is a unique platform for donors and community leaders to come together to discuss and analyse the needs of European Jews. Annual EJF Advisory Council meetings foster dialogue between Jewish communities, with open exchanges of experience that produce cooperative solutions to shared challenges. The EJF supports and welcomes proposals and action plans for communal projects and regional and pan-European programmes. It also initiates programmes of its own to address issues concerning specific communities, or European Jewry as a whole. These EJF activities help strengthen the relationship between Europe’s Jewish communities.
