Following the Paris terror attacks and the recent Belgian lockdown, the Chief Rabbi of Brussels (pictured above), has said his country’s 30-40,000 Jews are living in fear and that there is “no future” for them in Europe.Chief Rabbi Albert Guigui was talking with an Israeli radio station after synagogues across Brussels were closed on Shabbat for the first time since the Second World War during the four day city-wide terror lockdown, reports Jewish News.
Rabbi Guigui, who is also on the Standing Committee of the Conference of European Rabbis — the primary Orthodox rabbinical alliance in Europe — said:
“There is a sense of fear in the streets, they understand that they too are targets of terror. Jews now pray in their homes and some of them are planning on emigrating.
“There has been aliyah to Israel as well as emigration to Canada and the U.S., people understand there is no future for Jews in Europe.”(READ MORE)
