The Center for Jewish Life (CJL) is proud to host Israel Shabbat, which celebrates Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state. We will celebrate Israeli culture through food and a performance by Joel Chasnoff, an Israeli comedian who will share his humorous take on the experience of immigrating to Israel from the United States. There will be a discussion session during dinner led by Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer, and students will share their experiences from two CJL-sponsored trips to Israel and the West Bank over winter break. Through our wide range of thoughtful and nuanced Israel-related programs, the CJL embraces the diversity of opinions that members of our community have about Israeli politics. We look forward to welcoming the entire campus community on Friday night.

We, the Alliance of Jewish Progressives and those undersigned, call upon the Princeton community to abstain from attending the Center for Jewish Life (CJL)’s “Israel Shabbat” this Friday evening, hosted in partnership with Tigers for Israel (TFI).

It’s 2019. Whitewashing, tacky “Oriental” costumes, and the fetishization of Asian women just aren’t trendy anymore like they might have been back in the good ol’ days. But it seems like Princeton High School didn’t get the memo.

It’s easy to say “equal pay for equal work.” The fact of the matter is that neither the work, nor the product of that work, is equal in U.S. Soccer. The women’s team plays more games, and wins more games (including more World Cups and Olympic championships), than the men’s team. Yet, the women’s national soccer team is paid far less for its victories.

This model helps BGC provide sustained support and guidance to their students.
