University of Illinois Creates Jewish Council to Fight Antisemitism

The University of Illinois has created a new Jewish advisory council in order to combat antisemitism and build an inclusive campus environment for Jewish students at the university, as reported by the student newspaper on Monday.

The council was announced by Chancellor Robert Jones on March 12 and came following complaints from students regarding antisemitic incidences on campus.

“This is a step forward, a good step forward, in solving the problem of dealing with antisemitism on campus,” Erez Cohen, co-chairman of the council and executive director of Illinois Hillel said. (JPost / VFI News)
