Hillel at Ohio State University has cut ties with Bnai Keshet, a Jewish LGBTQ group, because they co-sponsored an event with Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP). On March 3rd, JVP and Bnai Keshet jointly sponsored a Purim drag show raising money for LGBTQ refugees.
Aviva Slomich, International Campus Director for CAMERA, made the following statement in response to Hillel’s actions:
“Hillel has a policy of not working with any organization who support BDS, or seek to demonize Israel. Jewish Voice for Peace does much worse than this – it says it is honored to host Rasmea Odeh at their National Membership Meeting in Chicago next week. Odeh is a convicted terrorist who murdered two college students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner, after planting a bomb in a Jerusalem supermarket in 1969. This is the organization with which Hillel International refuses to comply. Hillel at Ohio State University should be commended for their staunch position in not working with extremist organizations that support attacks against innocent people, no matter their religion, race or ethnicity.”
