Campus Anti-Semitism: Separating Reality from Hysteria

Recent news reports suggest that anti-Semitism on college campuses is skyrocketing and Jewish students are cowering in fear.  But how can we separate reality from hysteria? Using the most up-to-date data, we will explore the following questions:  

  • What does campus anti-Semitism look like and who are its perpetrators?
  • How many Jewish students are affected by anti-Jewish hostility and at which schools is the problem most severe?
  • What kinds of strategies have been used to address campus anti-Semitism and how effective have they been?
  • What lessons can campus anti-Semitism teach us about the broader challenges facing the Jewish community and how we can overcome them?
