So proud of our Rabbis and Rebbetzins on campus!

Bravo! You are the light to their hate filled darkness. Your presence and positivity is a life line for the Jewish students on campus. The world is asking what can we do now? What should.our response be? The answer is that the Rebbe sent the cure many years ago. Support our Chabads on campus!

I live in the Columbia U area and am an alumni. I have visited the campus where there have been demonstrations that I saw, but, everyone was under control and voicing their views without dissing or antagonizing others. There may be some – outliers or outside agitators – who act wrongly and aggressively but to have a headline that speaks of “antisemitic anarchy” is to misrepresent what is happening. I saw police getting rough with people and hauling people away for arrest who refused to leave their encampment. Is that anarchy? I don’t think so. I protested the Vietnam War… Read more »

The numerous real time videos out there contradict every word you say.

For goodness sake, you are delusional. I don’t live near CU but I too am an alumnus, I know the atmosphere very very well, and while I have fond personal memories of Alma mater, I could not more strongly disagree with you about the general atmosphere on College Walk. Jewish students are the only— the only— group that must regularly encounter invective directed at their people, as part of the “college experience” both at Columbia, and far too many other institutions. Chabad and others provide an actual safe space for them, but it should not be the case that we… Read more »

Must’ve been annoying seeing someone slander a place you probably remember fondly.

Apologies on their behalf.

Politics is a world of deceit and difficulty. Let’s leave it all and instead focus on bringing the one leader we want – Moshiach.

And by "slander"...

Slander? There is no slander. I remember CU fondly as well on a personal level. I think that is the issue with many alumni. A lot of us found many personal aspects of the university to be great, but those of us who went there in recent years always had to ignore the general atmosphere of severe hostility toward the Jewish people as a whole, which did not hurt us so much on an individual level because we developed a thick skin. And so many of us have assumed a falsely reassuring belief that everyone can go through it the… Read more »

How much are they paying you to sit and type this false propoganda?

I would curse you if I could. If you are reading on COLlive you should also know what the rebbe’s views are on returning land or giving in the first place.. I hate you and all self hating Jews like yourself. The one thing worse than anti smites are those who wish they can get out of it by joining them, ie self hating Jews.

Your view of netanyahu in the second half of your comment shapes your view in the first half of your comment,, you don’t like “the far right” so you whitewash the far left,, please be honest with yourself, antisemitism is antisemitism is antisemitism no matter how you want to dress it up.

of your post is a misguided lie. Among other things, the “settlements” that you so revile are what’s keeping the West Bank from becoming another Gaza, a source of rockets and Oct. 7s against all of Israel. And if there’s one thing you could see from what Hamas and their enablers say, it’s that Israel has no right to exist, not in its 1948 borders and not anywhere, so your claim that you’ve “supported Israel and its right to exist for 40 years” is a hollow sham.

While I do not live in the area anymore, I am an alumnus myself and as it is, CU is regrettably helping to seed antisemitism in Universities throughout the USA by its terrible example. The tolerance of this any further will lead to its entrenchment in American society at a level that will be almost impossible to reverse. No, this is the time to say that enough is enough.

I am a self hating Jew and self hating American Communist terror sympathiser too. Let’s stand in unity and love for ourselves and exercise our rights to hate on, and condemn to death all that think differently from us.
