Anti-Israel Rhetoric as Camouflage for anti-Semitism and Its Effects at the United Nations
February 28, 2017

On Tuesday, Feb. 28, Professor Steven Resnicoff will address LDB law students at the University of Minnesota on, "Anti-Israel Rhetoric as Camouflage for anti-Semitism and Its Effects at the United Nations." Professor Resnicoff is an internationally known legal scholar who has written and lectured extensively on a wide variety of subjects, including alternative dispute resolution, bankruptcy, commercial paper, legal ethics, and medical ethics. Drawing on his formal Talmudic training as well as law firm experience, Professor Resnicoff analyzes these issues from both secular and religious perspectives, often exploring how these disparate systems interact. As holder of DePaul's Wicklander Chair for Professional Ethics in 2001, he focused on honesty and integrity in the legal profession and in legal education. His works also have been cited favorably by academics and courts.

Research Articles
and Reports
Over 50% of Jewish American college students report that they experienced or witnessed anti-Semitism on their campuses during the 2013-2014 academic year. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has announced that campus anti-Semitism “is a serious problem which warrants further attention.” Campus anti-Semitism can include subjecting Jewish students to different treatment, harassment, violence or a hostile environment. In some cases, campus anti-Semitism is related to anti-Israel sentiment. In other cases, it is not. For most purposes, we define anti-Semitism according to the U.S. Department of State definition of anti-Semitism. .
