Jewish students at Williams blast Hillel for booting LGBTQ group after it co-sponsored event with JVP

My sense is that Hill International, once-upon-a-time organized as a “Jewish” organization, has elected to recast itself as a “Mandatorily Zionist” (not to say “totalitarian”) organization (and thus, IMO, decidedly not “Jewish”).

Accordingly, it seems to me, all students seeking membership in a “Jewish” organization — irrespective of their position on the political business of Zionism — should immediately leave Hillel International, and do so noisily, and find another home. Perhaps they can find a home under another religious roof, say, use a campus Christian group’s facilities on Saturday, or something of the kind. Maybe they can form a “Jewish Club” on campus (like JVP or SJP).

But, mainly, quit, leave, abandon, abominate, despise HI. and let everyone know (and know why).

Imagine if some campus Hillel lost 50% of its membership in a “noisy” withdrawal of the sort I’ve suggested. Imagine if this idea caught on and it happened in campus-after-campus-after-campus.

Jewish students affirming Jewish identity and disaffirming Mandatory Zionist (totalitarian) identity.

Be a good thing.
