About The Conference of European Rabbis:
One thousand years of Jewish life in Europe came almost to a halt during last century, when the great majority of the Jewish community was wiped out by the Nazis, and the remnant of our people living in Eastern Europe and in the Soviet Union were forced into cultural and ethnic assimilation.

The Conference of European Rabbis (CER) is the primary rabbinical alliance in Europe. It unites more than 700 religious leaders of the mainstream synagogue communities in Europe. The conference is designed to maintain and defend the religious rights of Jews in Europe and has become the voice of Judaism for the European continent.
