Last week, Leah Grynheim, a senior at Indiana University Bloomington, published her first blog post for The Times of Israel: “Hillel excludes pro-Israel narratives.” Grynheim condemned the acts of Hillels across the nation, claiming that the organization has “failed to uphold their mission statement,” and she specifically mentioned my college, Clark University.
