Many in our community have expressed concern about anti-Semitic and bigoted statements by a professor at Rutgers University. We have been in close contact with our partners on campus at Hillel, who take the lead when it comes to issues on campus - and who we fund to both engage students and educate about Israel.
You can read about this situation and their response here.
The Jewish Federation, as part of our role combating hate and bias throughout our community, has also been in touch directly with the Rutgers administration. We are pleased to share our communication here.
Our approach is to keep our community informed of these issues, how we respond, and what individuals can do to help. Your ongoing support of the Jewish Federation enables us to be both responsive and proactive when it comes to important concerns and issues in our community.
