With the IHRA definition of antisemitism, the CJL alienates left-wing Jewish students

“In prioritizing the protection of Zionism over the protection of Jewish students on this campus, the CJL betrays the cause it claims to care so much about. The Princeton Jewish community, and Princeton students in general, deserve better than this political stunt masquerading as an attempt to fight antisemitism.”

Princeton needs to rethink its ban on social gatherings

We shouldn't let an uptick in cases distract us from the fact that we are well-protected, and we should not restrict students' activities in ways that would make, at most, a marginal impact on student health but a significant impact on their well-being.
