About the EAJC

The Euro-Asian Jewish Congress was established in 2002 on the initiative of the leaders of the Jewish Congress of Kazakhstan, the Federation of Jewish Organizations and Communities of Russia (Vaada of Russia) and the Association of Jewish Organizations and Communities of Ukraine (Vaada of Ukraine). The concept of the new organization began to evolve back in 1991, when the Jewish community of the USSR joined the World Jewish Congress.

The Euro-Asian Jewish Congress is created to protect the rights and legitimate interests of the Jewish people, as well as to promote the satisfaction of community interests and needs, to protect the rights of the Jewish people, and, together with organizations and associations representing Jewish communities of individual states, for the official representation of the Jewish communities of the Euro-Asian region in the governments of the countries of the region and international organizations.
