IJC and ZAKA to cooperate

IJC and ZAKA to cooperate

Israeli Jewish Congress President Vladimir Sloutsker and ZAKA founder Yehuda Meshi Zahav vowed to cooperate on various issues during their meeting on March 26th 2012.
One of the first issues they wish to take care of is the recognition of Jewish victims of terror in the world by the State of Israel. The IJC and ZAKA will together call upon the Knesset to change current laws in order to allow for this recognition.
This action comes after the problems that arose in bringing the remains of the Toulouse terror attacks victims to Israel for burial. More information on this issue can be found here.
