Statement from President and CEO Eric Fingerhut

by Hillel News |Feb 12, 2015|Comments

Hillel International President and CEO Eric Fingerhut today released the following statement prompted by media reports on events at Durban University of Technology:

“Reports that student leaders at the Durban University of Technology are pressuring the administration to identify and expel Jews are positively chilling. Hillel International stands in solidarity with Jewish students everywhere in their right to experience a safe and welcoming higher education. With U.S. campuses continuously tested by BDS, we are mindful of the short leap between contending with an anti-Israel movement and one that is dangerously and unabashedly anti-Semitic. We will not permit such hatred to take root on any campus in the world where Hillel can extend its reach and offer support.”
