Andrew Srulevitch was in town on Jan. 12 to speak to current fellows with the Anti-Defamation League’s Glass Leadership Institute and to the board of the Arizona Jewish Historical Society. As the ADL’s director of European affairs, Srulevitch monitors anti-Semitism in Europe and advocates for the security of Jewish communities there.

The last time Jewish News spoke with him was in 2014, barely two years after the attack on the Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse, France, that killed Rabbi Jonathan Sandler, his two young sons and the daughter of the school’s principal. Since then, the terror toll in Europe has included Islamist terror attacks in Brussels, Paris, Nice and Berlin that have heightened the sense of insecurity among the Jews of Europe. In addition, nationalist, xenophobic parties in countries such as the Netherlands, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Greece seem to be gaining adherents in response to waves of immigrants and refugees flooding the European Union in the wake of the Syrian civil war and other catastrophes.
