On October 2 this year, the European Union of Jewish Students, together with the Union des Etudiants Juifs de Belgique (Belgian Jewish Student Union) and with the support of the Coordinating Committee of the Belgian Jewish Organizations (CCOJB) gathered to pay respects to Shimon Peres, ninth President of the State of Israel. Peres was an optimist and a dedicated man full of wisdom who never stopped believing in achieving peace.
On this day, EUJS President, Benjamin Fischer, said that "For 70 years, Shimon Peres was part of the Israeli politics. He was the last Founding Father of the State of Israel. He lived a life worth celebrating. Shimon Peres is a man that symbolizes both the State of Israel and, at the same time, its ambition to foster and to live in peace. He is a role model. A man that never lost his laughter. Thank you, Shimon."
We will truly miss this exceptional person. Baruch Dayan Emet.
