Anti-Semitism at New York University (NYU), the large private institution in the city that is home to the nation’s largest Jewish population, is unfortunately hardly new. As far back as 2014, The Times of Israel noted how the egregiously misnamed anti-Semitic hate group “Students for Justice in Palestine” was harassing Jewish students at NYU by means of “distribut[ing] mock eviction notices to students in [a] dorm [that] is known across campus as one with a high concentration of Jewish residents, and is the only NYU dorm with a Shabbat elevator, listing distorted facts, and with the stated purpose of ‘draw[ing] attention to the reality that Palestinians confront on a regular basis.'”
But the problems at NYU for Jewish students and pro-Israel activists have continued unabated. Aaron Bandler reported last month for the Jewish Journal:
A group of pro-Israel students has filed a complaint against New York University (NYU) with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR). . .
The April 22 complaint obtained by the Journal was filed on behalf of NYU students who are members of student organizations supporting Israel or Jewish issues, and senior Adela Cojab, who was the 2018 president of the student group Realize Israel.
The complaint argues there have been “two years of extreme anti-Semitism on the NYU campus” due to NYU SJP’s actions, and the administration’s inability to properly handle them constitutes a violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, which “prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin.”
