Jewish groups launched a campaign to urge North American universities to remove barriers to study abroad in Israel. The Israel on Campus Coalition brought together some of the top leadership of its member groups — 26 Jewish organizations on campuses — to give prominence to the campaign, launched Thursday at Columbia University Hillel in New York. Citing security concerns amid the ongoing intifada, some universities have “created obstacles that have impeded or at times prevented students from pursuing their desire to study in Israel,” the coalition said. The campaign urges Jewish groups to work with students, universities and community leaders to promote study in Israel.
