Student leaders of the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundations endorsed today the Nov. 13-15 Vietnam Moratorium March on Washington as an affirmation of their “desire to expedite the end of the war.” The 23 students from campuses throughout the country, holding their first meeting as the National Hillel Student Consultative Committee, also called on local Hillel units at 240 American colleges to give consideration to “their individual involvement in local moratorium observances.” The consultation committee was created this year to give students a greater voice in Hillel policy actions. Four of the group also serve as full voting members of the Hillel Foundations’ national commission, the organization’s highest policy board. The committee also offered student assistance to Hillel’s national headquarters for its cooperative program with other Washington-based Jewish organizations “to provide housing, religious services, kosher food and relevant programs” for Jewish students who will participate in the upcoming Moratorium observance.
