Letter to the Editor

I applaud the authors of these articles for speaking to these truths. Yet, to me, there are a couple of pieces that these Student Life articles got utterly, fundamentally wrong.

This past Saturday morning, in Hillel’s egalitarian minyan (prayer service), when we returned the Torah scroll to the ark, as we do each week, we chanted together, “[the Torah] is a tree of life for those who hold fast to it.”

American Jews, throughout history and especially today, have been at the forefront of supporting some of the most marginalized communities worldwide, especially through tragedies and horrors. Make no mistake, Jewish communities in America and worldwide support other marginalized communities during tragedies which make the news, but also during daily struggles which do not necessarily make the news.

While the current situation between Israel and Palestine seems to be a modern singularity, it is, in fact, the culmination of thousands of years of methodic anti-Semitism.

Letter to the Editor: In response to ‘Do you dream of a better world?’

I would argue that the key to a better, more inclusive and equitable future does not rest solely in looking backward throughout history for concrete evidence that revolution toward societal betterment is possible, but in combining our past knowledge with imaginative thinking.

And please do not repeat my mistake of blaming yourself for it. You did NOT do anything to bring on that predatory behavior or to encourage it. It was NOT your fault.

Letter to the Editor: Wash. U. grad workers union is still here, still fighting

From the beginning, the Wash. U. administration has chosen to hide behind union-busting lawyers in the courtroom rather than to listen to us.
