“I found I a kindred spirit, we spoke the same language, have the same worries and are committed to the same principles. So I found it very helpful for meeting. And I hope that we can go together, Jews and Christians to strengthen the moral fabric of Europe.”

The Chief Rabbi spoke on the importance of business ethics based on Jewish and Christian principles. He paraphrased this with a famous Christian text: “What will it profit Europe if it gains the world yet loses its soul?”
