Hillel / University

“There is too much political anger on university campuses today, too little robust debate, too much suppression of robust debate about Israel, too much degrading of First Amendment principles and too much latent and overt anti-Semitism”

There is too much political anger on university campuses today, too little robust debate, too much suppression of robust debate about Israel, too much degrading of First Amendment principles and too much latent and overt anti-Semitism. Jewish students must learn to deal with all of this – and they do remarkably well. In the end, Hillel is better equipped than any other group to educate and nurture them. The Jewish community should express its appreciation to Hillel and not seek to deprecate its splendid record of accomplishment.
