Harvard Divinity School graduate student Rachel Fish became disturbed last winter by what she heard at a conference she helped organize on global anti-Semitism. The 23-year-old Tennessee native learned there might be a connection between a new $2.5 million endowed chair in Islamic studies at the divinity school and an Arab cultural center that promotes Holocaust deniers, and anti-Semitic and anti-American concepts.
