Eric RivlinCFI’s Parliamentary Chairman (Lords) Rt. Hon. The Lord Pickles this week attended what was described as “a special emergency conference” on antisemitism, hosted by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

President Rivlin hosted representatives from Europe and the United States to discuss ways to combat the worldwide scourge. President Rivlin endorsed the IHRA definition of antisemitism and urged all countries to adopt it.

He underlined: “Your clear voices and the work you do are crucial, particularly at such a challenging and hostile time… We share the understanding that antisemitism is not a Jewish problem alone. It is a problem for all humanity”.

Lord Pickles, who is the UK Special Envoy for post-Holocaust issues, said it was a “privilege” to hear President Rivlin speak.
