JD: The synagogues in Europe, now there’s much concern about what’s going on with the rise of anti-Semitism not only across the entire European Union but the world in fact and here in the United States with the dastardly act of killing 11 Jews in Pittsburgh synagogue. Now the European synagogues are like a fortress. Are the Jews there in Europe John fearing for their life because of this attack in Pittsburgh?

JR: There’s always been a history of anti-Semitism in Europe and of course there’s been huge terrorist attacks and so forth. And so through these last decades in Europe they have really incorporated a very multi layered security system for the synagogues and Jewish sites for example.
