Euro Jewish parliament plan

By Simon Rocker, September 1, 2011

Plans are under way to set up a European Jewish parliament, with an online poll to elect its 120 members due to open later this month.

The initiative has been launched by the European Jewish Union, a Swiss non-profit organisation with a head office in London. EJU chief executive Tomer Orni, a former executive vice-president of the European Council of Jewish Communities, said the parliament was for people from more than 50 countries who were "passionate about strengthening Jewish life and representing the European Jewish voice".
