Hundreds of rabbis from around the world marched in Berlin this week to mark the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, when Nazis attacked Jews and ransacked Jewish businesses and synagogues. The rabbis came from over 30 countries. They marched in silence from the Brandenburg Gate to the Holocaust memorial. Meanwhile, nearly two-thirds of European Jews in a recent survey said that anti-Jewish attitudes are a problem where they live, and even more believe that anti-Semitism has increased over the past five years.
