Yad Vashem Statement About Appointment of Effi Eitam
The European Union for Progressive Judaism (EUPJ) joins the WUPJ, IRPJ, URJ, and all other Progressive Reform movements across the globe in expressing our opposition to the appointment of Brigadier General Effi Eitam (retired) to the position of Chair of the Executive of the Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum.
The appointment would go against the values of this institution, its important role in Israel and the world, and would be contrary to the central message at the heart of Holocaust memory and research into the worst disaster in the history of the Jewish people.
