 The conference was officially opened on Sunday, March 30 at 18:30 in the evening. It was attended by 65 people from 18 countries throughout Europe. Conference participants were greeted by Chief Rabbi Albert Gigi and Chabad Rabbi Shimon Lasker.

Mr. Jacky Benzennou, President of KKL-JNF Belgium, said that he was very honored to host the ELC conference in Belgium. "For KKL-JNF Belgium, 2014 will be a record year in terms of income and financing projects. We are a part of the greater KKL-JNF family, which ensures the connection between all the different parts of the Jewish people. I am especially thrilled to see our young leadership, who show that KKL-JNF can look forward to a bright future."
KKL-JNF World Chairman Efi Stenzler said that it was wonderful to feel the energy that is produced when there is a shared goal and identity. "Seventy years after the Holocaust that murdered over a third of the Jewish people, we cannot imagine what it means to be a Jew without the Jewish state. I would like to thank the conference organizers for choosing the topic of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel groups. We will work together on how to deal with these phenomena. The conference provides us with an opportunity to show the world what KKL-JNF has accomplished in the fields of afforestation, water, research and development and technology. We want the world to see an Israel that they don't see on TV."
