The Coordinating Committee of Jewish Organizations in Belgium (Comité de coordination des organisations juives de Belgique; also known by the acronym CCOJB) is the most important political authority of Belgian Judaism. The CCOJB is a member of the European Jewish Congress and the World Jewish Congress.
An American ‘lawfare’ organisation has said it will help Belgium’s Jewish community challenge the ban of non-stun animal slaughter in court. [...] The New York-based Lawfare Project will help sue the Walloon Parliament in Belgium’s Constitutional Court in a lawsuit brought by the Belgian Federation of Jewish Organisations (CCOJB). CCOJB president Yohan Benizri said the ban “sends a message to Belgian Jews that they can choose between living in Belgium and practicing their religion, but they cannot do both… It sends a clear message to Belgium’s Jewish and Muslim communities that they are not welcome here”.
