CUNY Has a Serious Anti-Semitism Problem
“Spring will see the exit of the last two remaining Jews on the school’s 80-member senior-leadership team, in a city whose population is about 20% Jewish.”
This is a problem in all of higher ed, but CUNY stands apart.
From the New York Post:
How CUNY became America’s most anti-Semitic university
The “cleansing” of Jewish students and lecturers from German universities from 1933 to 1935 was one of the Nazis’ first goals met.
Ninety years later, in the metropolis with the world’s largest Jewish population, the City University of New York has successfully completed a yearslong initiative to expunge all Jews from its senior leadership.
Spring will see the exit of the last two remaining Jews on the school’s 80-member senior-leadership team, in a city whose population is about 20% Jewish.
It will be the first time since its 1961 founding that CUNY’s senior leadership will be Jew-free or Judenrein, for those who fear the horrors of history repeating itself.
This is just one of many systemic initiatives designed to expel the Jewish presence at CUNY.
The once-vibrant recruitment of students at New York City’s Jewish schools has all but ceased at most campuses, and there is now abundant evidence demonstrating it’s more difficult than ever for a Jewish professor to attain a CUNY faculty position.
But what bodes even worse for the city’s Jewish students and academic leaders is that CUNY seems hell-bent on replacing its Jews with anti-Semites.
Three of CUNY’s most powerful leaders have documented ties or allegiances to the Hamas-connected Council on American-Islamic Relations and the boycott, divestment, sanctions movement.
Chancellor Felix Matos Rodriguez in 2021 hired Saly Abd Alla as the university’s chief diversity officer, overseeing 25 campuses and 230,000+ students.
Abd Alla was a director at CAIR Minnesota, which pushed the BDS movement under her watch.

So sad, and yet, like in the 1930’s,there are few voices speaking out against this hatred….
This has been happening since the dawn of open admissions in the early 1970s
They also still require Covid vaccinations, and as far as I know are denying all exemptions, after everyone else including Columbia has moved on from that.
