A group of European rabbis will honor former Polish prime minister Jerzy Buzek  with an award for his commitment to fighting anti-Semitism on Tuesday. 

The Conference of European Rabbis (CER) will bestow the first “Prix du Judaïsme Européen – Prix Lord Jakobovits” on Buzek in a ceremony held at the Great Synagogue of Europe in Brussels.

"For many years, Jerzy Buzek has been a great friend of the Jewish people. Both as Polish PM and European Parliament president, he built bridges, vigorously fought anti-Semitism, helped to keep up the memory of the Shoah and was a supporter of the State of Israel,” CER President Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt said in a press release.

During the event a special prayer will be held in memory of the victims of the Toulouse shootings last week.
