Grand Opening Ceremony of the Jewish Community Centre

Address by President Anastasiades at the grand opening ceremony of the Jewish Community Centre and the ground breaking of the Jewish Holocaust Museum of Cyprus.

'It is with distinct honour that I join you {…} at the opening ceremony of the Jewish Community Centre in Larnaca and the ground breaking of the Jewish Holocaust Museum of Cyprus.
At the outset, I wish to express my heartfelt wishes and congratulations for the grand occasion of Israel’s 70th independence anniversary and to acknowledge and pay tribute to the remarkable achievements of the people of Israel.

The history of Jews in Cyprus dates almost 2000 years back and the centre we inaugurate {…}, in Larnaca, will enable the Jewish community to share with us its rich cultural heritage.
A community with significant contributions to this country; contributions that shaped Cyprus in every aspect and, whose unique traditions enrich our multi-ethnic society and form a dynamic link between our two countries.

Both the Cypriot and Jewish Communities are united by their openness in diversity; a diversity which builds bridges and makes us stronger.

Since its establishment in 2005, the Jewish Community Cyprus successfully promotes the Jewish culture, history and traditions in Cyprus. We are enormously proud that your community is an integral part of our society, history and culture."
