The first time that I ever received any serious reprimand for misbehavior in school was in the seventh grade. At the suburban midwestern Jewish Day School I attended from ages 8 to 14, we commemorated a wide variety of Jewish holidays. But as I came of age, I became increasingly skeptical about the “Jewish” content of many of the events that we celebrated.

In recent months, I developed a weekly ritual. As the clock struck midnight, and Sunday turned to Monday, I would complete and scan my COVID-19 test. On my way to class in the morning, I would toss my biohazard baggie into the testing dropbox and go about my day. After my seminar, I would check the TigerSafe app and do a little jump for joy: another week with no COVID-19 detected.
When James Madison Class of 1771, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay wrote the Federalist Papers — some of this country’s most important opinion editorials — they had seven months to write nearly 70,000 words. The stakes of the modern era are no lower, yet news comes at an exponentially faster rate.
Tomorrow afternoon, Princeton College Republicans, The Princeton Tory, and the Clio Party will be hosting an event with Representative Jim Hagedorn (R-Minn.). In the past, Hagedorn claimed that former Senator Joe Lieberman only supported the Iraq War because he was Jewish.
In February 2019, Dr. Vanessa Tyson ’98 publicly came forward accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault. More than 150 University students and community members signed a letter standing with her in solidarity and calling for Fairfax’s resignation. Sadly, one year later, Fairfax is still in office.
On Nov. 21, the Israeli Attorney General announced four indictments levied against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. I saw the Facebook posts of dozens of my parents’ friends rejoice and celebrate what they described as the imminent “return of Israel to normalcy.”
This afternoon, College Republicans will host a conversation between New York Times columnist Bret Stephens and author Yoram Hazony ’86 regarding the future of conservatism, nationalism, and the Republican Party. It is disappointing that a conversation this interesting is being conducted by two men who share disturbing records of racist remarks.
Last spring, when the Alliance of Jewish Progressives (AJP) was approached by its allies in the Young Democratic Socialists (YDS) and Princeton Committee on Palestine (PCP) to cosponsor an event with Dr. Norman Finkelstein, it was put to a vote of membership. At the time, I was a co-Chair of the organization, and, like the vast majority of members, I voted in the affirmative. “Fighting for Justice from Gaza to Ferguson: Black and Palestinian Solidarity” was presented as an exciting opportunity for the university community to learn about the concept of solidarity and movement building. As a leader of AJP, I saw our decision to cosponsor the event as not an endorsement of any particular speaker or political message, but rather to deem the event as worthy of attendance and in keeping with our core values.
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). This event, which fails to reckon with the nuances of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is deeply hurtful and exclusionary to members of the Princeton Jewish and broader campus communities.
As winter turns to spring, both the weather and the 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary are heating up. Whether it be Whig-Clio debates, Princeton College Democrats meetings, or The Daily Princetonian pieces, it feels as if the campus gaze has skipped right past 2019 and into the heart of the primaries and caucuses that await us next year.
It was not until December of 2018 that the Senate voted to make lynching a federal crime. Between 1882 and 1986, Congress attempted 200 times on this legislation to no avail. Why did it take so long? The filibuster.
On Tuesday night, we will gather in the Whig Senate Chamber to watch the midterm election results trickle in. Unlike the mock Senate debates held here, this election will have real consequences.
Just two days after Brett Kavanaugh was narrowly confirmed to the Supreme Court, 198 Princeton students shuffled into McCosh 50 for a history lecture on Roosevelt’s attempted court-packing plan in 1937. As Professor Kevin Kruse began his lecture, the irony was lost on no one.
