INTRODUCTION BY RABBI ARON HIER, DIRECTOR, CAMPUS OUTREACH, SIMON WIESENTHAL CENTER.
Monday, January 28
225 WEST WASHINGTON STREET, CHICAGO, IL 60606
The Simon Wiesenthal Center is a global Jewish human rights organization that confronts anti- Semitism, hate and terrorism, promotes human rights and dignity, stands with Israel, defends the safety of Jews worldwide, and teaches the lessons of the Holocaust. With over 400,000 households in the U.S., it is accredited as an NGO at the U.N. and many other governmental organizations.
“Although much work still needs to be done, there is no doubt that Marcus’s campaign struck a significant chord that consequently allowed groups such as the Zionist Organization of America to file a complaint against the University of California, Irvine (UCI) on grounds of anti-Semitic harassment”
Asaf Romirowsky, Middle East Forum, in Jewish Political Studies Review (Spring 2011)
