New coalition fights cuts to campus services,
but with little success.
A protest by students over the planned reorganization of the Conservative movement’s Koach college program has won an acknowledgement that the program is important — but little else.
“There has been no concrete change,” said Rabbi Steven Wernick, executive vice president and CEO of the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism.
He stressed that the planned reorganization never contemplated an end of Koach but rather that it have a “more narrow focus on campus because of [limited] resources.”
