|Hot-Line to Combat Anti-Israel Activities on College Campuses|
A Jewish civil rights group named Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center has launched the “Campus Hotline,” a manned telephone switchboard to assist university students who are subjected to anti-Israel and anti-Semitic attacks at their schools. Students and faculty are encouraged to call the Campus Hotline at (718) 907-9258 to report any incidents of anti-Semitism, discrimination, intimidation, or harassment arising from anti-Israel activities on campuses.
Shurat HaDin is also soliciting information via the Hotline on boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns to delegitimize Israel on campus, as well as efforts to provide support for terrorist organizations.
Shurat HaDin is also in the process of creating a “Report Card” to rate campuses based on their commitment to the U.S. Department of Education’s civil rights guidance and to providing a safe and welcoming environment for Jewish students and faculty and for pro-Israel viewpoints. The organization expects administrators at poorly-ranked campuses to become more actively aware of both their legal obligations and their social responsibilities in responding to hostility and discrimination against Jewish students.
Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center is an international human rights law organization dedicated to enforcing basic human rights through the legal system and to representing victims of terrorism in courtrooms around the world. The organization is based in Tel Aviv and has a newly established American office located in New York.
