Jane Braden-Golay, President of the European Union of Jewish Students, Night before Speaking at United Nations
Merrick, New York, USA. January 21, 2015. JANE BRADEN-GOLAY, from Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and President of the European Union of Jewish Students, is speaking from pulpit to Rabbi CHARLES A. KLEIN, at left, at the Merrick Jewish Centre the night before she is scheduled to address - upon the invitation of Ambassador Samantha Power, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations - ambassadors and civil rights leaders at Rep. Power's residence, after the first United Nations General Assembly meeting on rise of anti-Semitic violence worldwide. When asked about recent terror attacks in France (against French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris), Braden-Golay said, "It's all still so very fresh.... Europe is in a shock state right now" but that she hoped in weeks to come "for all of us to take responsibility for creating a Europe that doesn't give room to this sort of terror again." AJC Long Island and Merrick Jewish Centre presented the event "Terrorism in France - Where Do We Go From Here?" with speaker Braden-Golay, a senior at the University of Zurich.
