Stop Anti-Semitism in Universities
By Leora Eisenberg
Universities have been ignoring anti-Semitism, and it is only getting worse. Leora Eisenberg, a high school student, explains how the institutions themselves allow for the situation to deteriorate.
Do NOT stand idly by to anti-Semitism. We ask YOU-- the students, the teachers, the parents and the friends to monitor universities and take action against the fear that students face every day.
- Do not hesitate to get in touch with universities when YOU feel that you have encountered anti-Semitism. We CANNOT afford to be silent.
- Reach out to other Jewish students on campus, if you are on campus. If not, reach out to Jewish groups on campus and build connections. Have members keep you up-to-date with what is going on with how you can help.
- Write about it, talk about it, make videos about it! The more people you can inform, the better off we are!
