Columbia U. rabbi says campus not safe for Jews & Sid enters fight

(New York, NY) — The chaos continues on the campus of Columbia University, where pro-Palestinian protestors have been camped out for six days now. They are demanding the Ivy-League school divest from any financial interests with Israel. Jewish students at the Upper Manhattan University say they have been harassed by protestors and are afraid to walk to classes. A campus rabbi has told Jewish students at Columbia to go home until they are better protected by the University. Another campus Jewish group has hired security guards to escort Jewish students from their dorms to Passover seders tonight.

WABC Host Sid Rosenberg, Michael Rapaport and area politicians held a news conference denouncing the antisemitism and lack of security at the school.

Columbia University is all virtual today. They say they are moving all classes online as they deal with pro-Palestinian protestors. The university also announced plans to more than double campus security in light of the protests. Columbia students have complained about their safety since the October 7th terror attack on Israel by Hamas. Those calls for help have been amplified since Columbia University’s President testified before Congress last week.  President Minouche Shafik  said the school needed to do a better job protecting students. After she spoke, the pro -Palestinian protests grew larger and more unruly.
