European rabbis condemn closure of Belarus embassy in letter to Netanyahu

BOSTON — The Conference of European Rabbis weighed in on Jerusalem’s decision to close its embassy in Belarus on Wednesday, sending a letter of protest to Prime Minister Netanyahu complaining of what it believes are the negative repercussions of the decision on the local Jewish community.

“This decision may overshadow the good relations with the growing Jewish community,” CER President Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt wrote in his letter to the PM and Foreign Ministry Director General Dore Gold.
