Seventy percent of European Jews will not go to synagogue on Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur this year, according to a poll released Tuesday. The survey was conducted last week by the European Jewish Association (EJA) and the Rabbinical Center of Europe (RCE) among a representative sample of 700 capital cities and communities in the periphery throughout Europe – from Britain in the west to Ukraine in the east.
