About the project

First of its kind, the EU-level project is aimed at raising security awareness, resilience, and preparedness among Jewish institutions, and communities around their places of worship.

The EUCARE plans to reach hundreds of thousands of individuals within the coming years. A strategic awareness campaign and actual training for groups within the Jewish community across Europe will do this.

The Community Awareness Resilience Education (C.A.R.E.) for Europe project (EUCARE) is co-funded by the European Union through the Internal Security Fund.

EUCARE is led by four Jewish organizations: CCIB in Belgium, Shalom in Bulgaria, NJSC and JC in Sweden. 

Understanding that the scope of threats posed to Jewish communities across Europe remains prevalent, EUCARE plans to raise security awareness and provide knowledge that will assist individuals in a time of crisis, mitigate risks, and prevent attacks by extremist elements.

The foundation of the EUCARE project lies in the C.A.R.E. program, originally piloted in Belgium. What sets this initiative apart is its emphasis on individual community members rather than just institutional capacity building. As we expand our efforts, we are committed to adapting our approach to each of the 18 EU countries involved, based on comprehensive surveys and evaluations of local capacity and specific needs. The 18 countries involved in the project are:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Luxemburg, Portugal, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and The Netherlands.

To ensure the success and sustainability of EUCARE we have established three key hubs- Northern, Western, and Eastern hub. These hubs will not only drive the project during its tenure but will also remain open to all countries and religions within their geographical purview beyond the project’s conclusion.

At the EUCARE project, we firmly believe that together, we can be stronger. By uniting our efforts and standing shoulder-to-shoulder with our communities, we can fortify the bonds of unity and resilience. Our dedication to fostering Community Awareness, Resilience, and Education in EU countries remains unwavering. As we navigate the challenges of our times, let us remember that through collaboration, understanding, and a shared commitment to safeguarding our sacred spaces, we can build a safer and more harmonious future for all.
