December's Second Trilateral Summit Welcomed
In December 2016, AHEPA, American Hellenic Institute (AHI),
B'nai B'rith International, and Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organizations issued the following joint
statement:
"We welcome the second trilateral summit between Israel,

The second summit demonstrates a commitment between the
three countries, which share democratic values and common
interests, to strengthen their strategic partnership to provide
stability to the eastern Mediterranean region. The announcement of a third summit to be held in Thessaloniki, Greece

The two organizations commended the January 2017 groundbreaking for a Holocaust Museum and Educational Center in
Thessaloniki, Greece.

such as Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland. The site of the museum
is in the area of the old

AHEPA and B'nai

persistence and collaborative efforts of Mayor
Yiannis Boutaris and
the Jewish Community
of Thessaloniki (JCT),
led by David Saltiel,
which has brought the
project to this important point.

It is expected that the museum will be inaugurated at the end
of 2019.
