House of War:

Jews On Campus

Event Description:

Today's landscape of higher education is fraught with anxiety for Jewish students and their parents. If you're a college-bound student, a parent with kids going to college, or a faculty member on campus dealing with everyday hate, you may want to tune into this show. Jewish college students often face unique challenges and prejudices stemming from the antisemitism and antizionism within academia focused on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, which more often than not rises to the level of hate speech, intimidation, threats, and violence against Jewish students. College life used to be an environment in which student safety and inclusion had once been sacrosanct. Today, the very DEI staff and initiatives meant to protect students are now ironically the ones targeting Jewish students, and violating their rights and sense of wellbeing. College is a crucial part of the next generation's education and preparation for their career. As such, taking away Jewish students' ability to enjoy their academic journey by attacking their identity is not only unfair, but also inexcusable.

It's one thing to deal with hate coming from other students, but what is a young Jewish student to do when their professor is discriminating against them solely based on their religion, ethnicity, nationality, culture, or political beliefs? What if that professor is outwardly hostile towards them, and any attempt to complain to the university administration is rebuffed, resulting in even more anger from the professor, and actual retribution in terms of failing grades on mandatory courses?

This phenomenon is so pervasive that many institutions have been sued under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 due to civil rights violations by university administrations, faculty, and professors against Jewish students, as well as an abject failure to set policies and procedures to protect their Jewish population. "House of War: Jews On-Campus" aims to address these pressing issues head-on, providing a platform for discussion, support, and empowerment.

This event series is a vital opportunity for Jewish students, parents, and community members and university staff and professors to come together and tackle the difficult realities of discrimination and hate that too often target Jewish students on college campuses.

Through a series of live events, panels, and interactive sessions, participants will explore strategies for coping with and confronting these challenges, as well as raising awareness about the issue within their communities.

The program will feature panel discussions by students, parents, Jewish community leaders, and university staff about the nuances of antisemitism, the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, and their impact on Jewish college students. Participants will gain insights into the historical context, current challenges, and potential avenues for advocacy and change.

We will also have practical ideas about how to navigate difficult conversations, respond to hate speech, and foster a sense of resilience and belonging on campus. We hope to help students learn valuable skills for self-advocacy and community building. Students will have the opportunity to connect with peers facing similar challenges all across the country, fostering a sense of solidarity and mutual support. Building these networks can provide invaluable resources for resilience and empowerment. Audience members will be international, so students will be able to interact with a wide array of Jewish advocates from around the globe.

We hope to also include sessions to guide parents on how to support their children through these experiences. Topics will include preparing for college, fostering open communication, and advocating for their children's well-being. "House of War: Jews On-Campus" is not only a space for dialogue but also a call to action. By shedding light on the struggles faced by Jewish college students and their families, we can work together to create more inclusive and supportive campus environments for all.
