In the latest sign of increased crime sweeping college campuses, a string of Hillel Houses that have adopted an “Open Hillel” policy have been robbed.
Swarthmore and Vassar Hillels were reported to have been the latest to find their facilities missing many of their basic “tenants:” wisdom, integrity and purpose, after instituting their new policy.
The Open Hillel policy, which relates to providing a platform even to anti-Israel speakers, was taken too literally by the progressive Hillel leaders on these campuses and they instead left the door open, police officials said.
Among the items found missing, authorities said, were: Tradition, history, a sense of Jewish peoplehood and back copies of The Jewish Weak.
