Kudos To…

thumbs-up

  • Kudos to NYU President Hamilton for his strong statement against the Grand Union Boycott vote stating, “A boycott of Israeli institutions…is at odds with the University’s position…NYU will not be closing its academic program in Tel Aviv, and divestment from Israeli-related investments is not under consideration.”
  • Kudos to Rep. Zeldin for condemning “BDS…and other hurtful anti-Semitic rhetoric” on college campuses across America.
