Who we are?

ejc-logoSACC is an initiative run by the European Jewish Congress (EJC) and is based in Brussels, Belgium. SACC is created by the SACC manager and SACC Core Team members, who are crisis management experts with a security background coming from various European Jewish Communities. SACC is also supported by the SACC Committee, which consists of the senior leaders of European Jewish communities involved in crisis management issues and who direct the SACC initiative.

What we do?

SACC was established with three main goals.

  1. To assist Jewish communities in Europe to prepare and apply local community crisis plans, which will enable them to face and handle various crisis situations in coordination with local authorities. As such, crisis situations are understood as, for example, natural disasters, vehicle or other major accidents, security incidents or any other situations that affect the community in a negative way and which require special measures to be taken.

It was the most devastating natural storm in the history of the United States— a powerful force that brought the city of New Orleans to its knees, crippling its infrastructure for more than a year and forever changing the lives of its people.
