Focus on: Brooklyn College
On college and university campuses across the country, Jewish students are being subjected to an insidious form of academic antisemitism: University Departments that sponsor, fund and provide academic legitimacy to on-campus events including speakers, films, exhibits, etc. that advocate for the elimination of the Jewish state. This form of campus antisemitism has proven extremely difficulty to challenge, as it is always wrapped in the protective mantle of “academic freedom.”
In a recent article, published in The New York Daily News, AMCHA Co-founder Tammi Rossman-Benjamin reveals the problem at Brooklyn College and explains why the Jewish community, taxpayers, and decent people everywhere should be outraged. Read more.
Focus on: Federal Protection of Jewish Students
For 45 years, the Federal Government denied to Jewish college/university students a legal protection under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that it gave to all other ethnic groups such as African-American, Hispanic, Middle Eastern students. Only in 2010 did the Federal Government through the Department of Education nominally extend such protection to Jews.
However, this August, the Department of Education dismissed complaints about civil rights violations against Jews on three University of California campuses, Berkeley, Santa Cruz, and Irvine. In October, University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) lecturer Tammi Rossman-Benjamin formally filed an appeal to the U.S. Department of Education- Office for Civil Rights (OCR), asking the department to reopen the complaint that she had filed in 2009, which was based on a long-standing and pervasive pattern of discrimination against of Jewish students at UC Santa Cruz in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Rossman-Benjamin’s original complaint charged that professors, academic departments and residential colleges at UCSC were promoting and encouraging anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish views and behavior, and creating a hostile environment for Jewish students.
