The Reform movement’s seminary is permitting North American students at its Jerusalem campus to go home early. Rabbi David Ellenson, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion’s president, said in a statement that the escalating violence in Jerusalem has prevented the university from maintaining the “integrity” of its year-in-Israel program for first-year rabbinic, cantorial and education students, and that students will have the choice of completing the remaining four academic weeks of the program in Jerusalem or North America.
