How should the Jewish community address campus situations? In May 2005, the American Jewish Committee's Koppelman Institute on American Jewish-Israeli Relations convened a consultation of campus leaders to deliberate on this question. At the consultation, several of the prepared papers debated specific strategic steps for the Jewish community to consider in addressing campus situations. The papers by Professors Deborah Lipstadt, Sam Freedman and Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller are reproduced in this publication.
