South Dakota State University’s Hillel is more than the only Jewish cultural club in the entire state. It’s also unique in that half its members are Messianic Jews.
Hillel is adamantly against its Swarthmore chapter’s decision to welcome even anti-Zionists to campus. It’s not clear where Swarthmore’s embrace of the ‘Open Hillel’ movement will end.
Swarthmore’s Hillel student board voted to defy restrictions of its parent organization and host programs by groups that support BDS — claiming the rules repress free speech.
