Merrick, New York, USA. January 21, 2015. JANE BRADEN-GOLAY, from Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and President of the European Union of Jewish Students, is speaking 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.
