Anti-hate nonprofit: Cornell unsafe for Jews

The nonprofit Alums for Campus Fairness is urging high school students to reject Cornell University.

“Considering Cornell? Cornell is not a safe place for Jewish students,” the group states in a brochure that it mailed to all New York City-area high schools, the New York Post reported. “Cornell refuses to enforce the student code of conduct, fostering a hostile climate that endangers Jewish students.”

“As a national network of alumni dedicated to countering antisemitism on campus, we felt an obligation to warn prospective Jewish students and their families about Cornell’s failure to protect our community,” per Avi Gordon, the nonprofit’s director, per the Post.

Earlier this year, an English instructor at Cornell canceled a class as part of an anti-Israel strike, and late last year, a junior at the Ivy League school was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill Jews.In January, a Cornell trustee said the school must scrap its “misguided commitment” to diversity, equity and inclusion and that “antisemitism and general intolerance have increased on campus.”
