Professors Astren and Dollinger: SF State Marginalizes Jews

Thursday, May 04, 2017

J WEEKLY -- Fred Astren is chair of the Jewish studies department at San Francisco State University. Marc Dollinger is the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility at San Francisco State University, where he teaches a course on anti-Semitism. They wrote an op-ed regarding anti-Semitism on campus.

“After six face-to-face meetings over the course of a year with San Francisco State University President Leslie Wong, we are obliged to report that there is no resolution in sight for problems plaguing Jewish student life on campus.

“The history of conflict involving Jews at S.F. State is not a new story, but the inability or unwillingness of the university administration to speak out and act in the face of the marginalization of Jewish students is bewildering and alarming.“
