We wish KKL-JNF and its Chairman Efi Stenzler many more years of remarkable achievements both in Israel and worldwide."

Jews in Europe and around the world are coping these days with complex challenges, and as it has proved in over history, our strength is first and mostly in our unity. I congratulate the EJU for their good work and the organizations' contribution in forming and consolidating a young leadership that will, in the future, lead Jews in Europe to great achievements and will serve in assisting in various issues that are on the agenda in the Jewish communities throughout the continent.
I salute Mr. Tomer Orni, CEO of EJU, for his constant support in our shared vision in the development of the State of Israel and I am certain that together we will continue to work on strengthening the bond with European Jews with the purpose of creating a better and 'Greener' Israel, a place that is pleasant to live in."
