EU: Jewish communities bankrupted by growing security costs

Via Times of Israel:
Many Jewish bodies in Europe are being bankrupted by the growing need for security measures, the US State Department’s special envoy on anti-Semitism said on Friday.

“Every Jewish community in western Europe certainly needs security support. Many of them are being bankrupted by the money they have to spend to protect their institutions,” Ira Forman told journalists in Stockholm.

“If current trends continue, and they’re not good… we have to worry about small Jewish communities in Europe and their very viability,” he added.
