Breakfast with Harold Avraham Weill

(4.10.2018) On Thursday 4 October our members had the opportunity to gain insights in the Jewish community in Strasbourg by talking with the Chief Rabbi of Strasbourg and Bas-Rhin, Harold Avraham Weill, who shared his experience as Rabbi in Strasbourg and Toulouse and extended his analysis also to the Jewish communities in other European cities.

He focused on the role of young people, who gather regularly to analyse and discuss sacred texts and who play a central function in the continuation of the community’s life.

Moreover, he pointed out the importance of hospitality towards refugees, owing also to the history of the Jewish people, and he reflected on the challenges facing religious dialogue in Strasbourg and Bas-Rhin.
