The Simon Wiesenthal Center issued a travel advisory for Copenhagen, Denmark on Monday, following warnings by Israel’s ambassador to Denmark advising Israelis not to wear kippot (skullcaps), jewelry with religious symbols, or to speak Hebrew on the streets of the capital.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human Rights organization said: "It is intolerable that any Jew should have to hide his or her identity on the streets of Copenhagen. The Simon Wiesenthal Center rejects this as the “new normal” for any Jew in Europe."

Cooper added that over the coming weeks, the center plans to meet with Danish authorities to "urge them to do more to take all necessary measures to secure the safety and security of Jews, citizens and visitors."
