About the Congress
The Euro-Asian Jewish Congress was created in 2002, by the initiative of the leaders of the Kazakhstan Jewish Congress, the Federation of Jewish Organizations and Communities of Russia (Vaad Russia), and the Association of Jewish Organizations and Communities of Ukraine (Vaad Ukraine). The idea for the new organization appeared as early as 1991, when the Jewish community of the Soviet Union joined the World Jewish Congress.
The Euro-Asian Jewish Congress has been created to defend the rights and legitimate interests of the Jewish people, to aid in satisfying community interests and demands, and also to represent Jewish communities of countries in the Euro-Asian region in the governments of their respective countries and international organizations. For these purposes, the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress works with organizations and unions which represent the Jewish communities of countries in the region.
