In the past few years, the AEPi Fraternity House at Rutgers University has been the target of antisemitic attacks during Yom HaShoah and Rosh Hashanah. In response, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) offered his support to AEPi’s president, Josh Brown, and to all other Jewish students on campus.
Mr. Booker went to Rutgers to discuss ways to stand up to antisemitism and to prevent it; he stressed the importance of kindness and deepening people’s understanding. He promoted open mindedness, and the importance of acknowledging our shared humanity.
“I’m grateful to Rutgers Hillel for hosting me and to the students for an enriching conversation,” Mr. Booker said. “Hearing from them left me energized and hopeful about a path forward that overcomes division and hate and celebrates our connections.”
