Lauder urges Danish gov't to increase protection for Jewish community

Following the attacks in Copenhagen on Saturday and Sunday that killed two people including one Jewish man guarding a Bat Mitzva outside of a synagogue, World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder urged the Danish government to step up efforts to protect the local Jewish community against rising anti-Semitic violence.
“The World Jewish Congress deplores these despicable attacks, and stands in solidarity with the Jewish community and the people of Denmark,” Lauder said.
“European governments should recognize that we are facing a vicious new wave of anti-Semitism and violence. It is crucial that Europe contends with this growing threat,” he added.
