Congratulations to the Zionist Organization of America – Michigan Region president Eugene Greenstein and Sandy Rosen, chair of the Adat Shalom Israel Advocacy Committee, for co-sponsoring attorney Susan Tuchman, director ZOA’s Center for Law and Justice. She made an excellent presentation on anti-Semitism on college campuses on Wednesday evening, April 15, at Adat Shalom Synagogue.

Dr. Greenstein noted that although U-M has a large Jewish student body and 80 percent of its donors are Jewish, these donors, like others at other universities, do not typically speak up to the university administration to counter the intimidation from hard anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism displayed by anti-Israel groups.

Ms. Tuchman began her presentation with a segment of the video Crossing the Line 2 showing graphic anti-Semitic attacks on students and Israeli officials by faculty and other students at universities across the country, including the University of Michigan. She discussed the inaction of college administrators when Jewish students’ rights were threatened compared to other groups and how Title VI of the Civil Rights Act could now be applied to protect Jewish students due to ZOA’s efforts.

Dr. Greenstein noted that although U-M has a large Jewish student body and 80 percent of its donors are Jewish, these donors, like others at other universities, do not typically speak up to the university administration to counter the intimidation from hard anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism displayed by anti-Israel groups.
