Hillel President Wayne L. Firestone has issued the following statement in support of Rutgers Hillel:
"Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life Hillel strongly supports Rutgers Hillel's ongoing efforts to pro-actively engage, educate and advocate for Israel while it opposes the strident and reprehensible anti-Israel activities taking place on its campus.
"The scheduled anti-Israel program that compares Israel to Nazi Germany is repugnant, anti-Semitic and defiles the sacred memory of the millions who perished during the Holocaust.
"We encourage Rutgers Hillel's courageous and exemplary work to express outrage over this anti-Israel campaign. We welcome the participation of campus and community partners. Hillel expresses gratitude to the local federations that have provided emergency aid to Rutgers and whose ongoing support has helped to make Rutgers Hillel a thriving center of Jewish life."
