The European Forum at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem will for the sixth consecutive year mark Europe Day, as 12 EU ambassadors visit the Hebrew University on May 8. This includes the EU ambassador to Israel and the ambassadors to Israel of 11 EU member states, among them Austria, Ireland, France, Belgium and Poland. In addition, the Mount Scopus campus will host booths from European cultural institutes and embassies, and musical performances will take place.

At 12 pm. and 2 p.m. there will be round table discussions with the ambassadors on the lawn outside the Mt. Scopus Forum. Each session will last an hour and a half and will allow participants to talk informally with ambassadors over coffee and cake. The first session will include ambassadors from Austria, Ireland, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Poland and Sweden. The second session will include the EU ambassador and ambassadors from Cyprus, Hungary, Romania and Slovenia. Students are invited to participate in the meetings.

Starting at 12 p.m., European-themed movies will be screened in the Frank Sinatra building.

At 4:30 p.m. an academic panel will address the challenges facing the EU, specifically the strength of the Euro currency, and EU immigration issues.

At 6:30 p.m. the European Union's ambassador to Israel, Mr. Andrew Standley, will host an official reception, which will be attended by Knesset members, government officials, university officials and other invited guests.

Europe Day, marked throughout the European Union on May 9, is an annual celebration of peace and unity in Europe. The day is also known as Schuman Day, commemorating the historical proposal by former French foreign minister Robert Schuman to create a new form of organization of states in Europe. Schuman is considered a founding father of the European Union.
