Three rabbis were arrested Tuesday during a protest in New York against a possible U.S. war with Iraq. Rabbi Arthur Waskow of Philadelphia and New York Rabbis Michael Feinberg and Ellen Lippmann were among about 100 people arrested for civil disobedience after they blocked the entrance of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations.

The student union of Montreal’s Concordia University conditionally lifted its ban on the school’s Hillel. The ban was imposed Dec. 2 after the pro-Palestinian union accused Hillel of distributing fliers recruiting volunteers for the Israeli army. The Concordia Student Union lifted the ban this past weekend when it learned of Hillel’s intention to sue.
