"And so, you know, we have a wonderful consult who's working with us. Rachel fish. And I'm always wanted to Steve podcast that she recorded in fact with you Jordan about having your gang, finding your feet, finding your people. And so what I think is really important what I see tribe talk really doing in defining who we are in this landscape. Of very complicated organizational, whatever it is is that we're giving these kids agency and they're finding the ladders of the kids are a little bit older than me. A little bit younger than them and they are needing together fabric of a community of caring individuals that are stepping up and saying, hey, this is not okay. This is my college experience too. So I guess that's what I think tribe talk is unique in terms of what it's creating as we are in. Its first year, not even actually anniversary net yet but soon is really about the connectivity and building a stronger community on whatever college campus, our students are kids or other kids are finding to be their best choice for their college experience. And the audience that tribe talk. Org is addressing his certainly, the high school student, but it's also the college student, junior, or senior year, it's never too late to get the information. You need to survive and thrive on campus, right? And I think one of the things that we are not, and I will probably talk about this little further down in the, the interview is, we are not an advocacy group because thankfully ADL and seeing with us and opened or media, the many, many, many other authors, Nations that are out there that are doing important work, that we can direct our students to go to to get clarity to learn about having more of an understanding around topics than just don't feel as well. Informed. So again, it's really about that landscape. What I would call the ground, the ground cover, if you will to really give them a chance to be able to start identify, what is it? That I know. And what is it that I'm still at that, I'm lacking knowledge and and and awareness. And so I think that's really really important to differentiate who we are. And let's see of other acronyms out there. I was going to follow up on Jude's point the landscape knowing them to go when you get on campus and how to find your Jewish path. And the meaning in your Jewish experience, on campus is so integral to what we're doing here, it's not only the standing up for your Jewish identity and standing up for Israel, it's needing up for who you want to be as you become a young adult in the world. And so, if you really care about Hillel or habad, that's great. If you want to be in the Jewish fraternity, wage, Understand that to what tribe talk is doing, is not only the anti-zionist anti-Semitism. It's also doing the meaning making on campus, finding a place for these Jewish students to come back on and find a place of belonging and connection. That is so true..

"Dealt on campus. You do see this and to be honest where you see it. Most is coming from students and social media And you see these ideas. These lies being perpetuated particularly in moments of times in which democracies are frame. And what i mean by that is jews remain uttered and as a scapegoat and in that particular situation. Even you know sitting where we are today where we hear about corona virus and we also see some economic challenges. Jews will be and are the first to blame. I'm glad you mentioned social media. Which is the the huge elephant and everybody's corner of the room So sad when bullying occurs for whatever reason but jews are particularly subject to social media abuse as are other minority groups around the world. But how do you suggest students deal with what can be just horrific if they're beset by social media thugs so it's really important that if any type of anti semitic rhetoric or comments are made on social media that those are reported to the social media channel or platform that is being utilized whether it's facebook. Instagram twitter whatever. It may be secondly should be reported to the anti-defamation league thirdly it should be reported to the local police and why it's important to report it to the local police is because this is called digital terrorism. There has to be away for there to be consequences and people cannot have complete anonymity to create an incite terror against a particular group of people. So that's very important. So students should know and all of us should know that there are avenues. We can take to to protect ourselves to protect others absolutely absolutely and the other thing i would say about social media. Is that the work that i'm doing now with mr craft and his family the foundation to combat antisemitism as that we wanna be able to try to create digital content that can be leveraged and use by all types of individuals between the ages of thirteen to thirty five and beyond in order to help articulate. Why humanizing jews is so important because much of the world really doesn't know juice right. It's really easy to other someone that you don't know and part of our work is to make jew hatred socially unacceptable in the twenty-first century in a previous discussion. We talked about some allies. Who are non jews gentiles or or people from the middle east who have really stepped up because they're decent people with with understanding. Talk a little bit more about the fact that it's not all one sided. There are many allies. That don't get a lot of attention. Unfortunately there are a lot of allies absolutely and we need to cultivate those relationships and encourage those relationships and find greater points of intersection and relationship building and bridging Bridge building bridges together I would say that you know first of all. There's a of christians from the middle east who they themselves have experienced the arabization of the middle east to the point in which they are no longer comfortable being in the middle east to practice their religion and have left the middle east. There are also different. Christian denominations in america specifically who are eager to engage with jews and have a goal ultimately to encourage positive relationships. There are a variety of the other ethnic communities as well. But what's important to note. Is that in terms of the hatred conversation. We actually see that. There are several populations who do not have familiarity with the history of antisemitism they have not or explored what happened during the holocaust and very often. Jews are viewed as being part of a white majority and not as a minority and this point is actually really important because for many students. What's going to be very important for them. Is to be able to share with their friends. Not in a confrontational way but really to share that. They're more than just a religion. Right in the american context judaism and jews or seen as a religious group like methodists and baptists in a piscopo aliens but actually jews are also a people and reclaiming that tribalism in a positive way is very important is in educational opportunity to engage with with all of these groups and on campuses We all know that hill groups are so positive and so reinforcing and all kinds of opportunities people do not just learn but to socialize. There are opportunities out there on campuses. Despite all this where students can find solace where they can find. Hope absolutely not. I would say beyond just finding hope. There's a lot of joy whether you go to hillel whether you go to hubbard whether it's your own. Peer group of students who want to find ways to engage with one another. There's a lot of joy in judaism and you can't only focus on the oil. There's a lot of opportunity to celebrate. Chabad every week is a gift right to disconnect from your phone to disconnect from thinking about your work for a couple of hours and really enjoy the community that you had and have meaningful in person interactions and make sure people get off those cell phones. I love from oil to joy not a bad way to go. Rachel thank you so much. Thank you so much and thank you for making the time. Our guest on the podcast has been dr.

"This tribe talk through podcasts. Such as this one webinars interactive online forums and firsthand experiences from current college students about what campus life is like today. Dr talk provides students with everything they need to know before they go to college. It introduces college students to the myriad of opportunities to build a meaningful jewish life on campus. Try talk also provides rising college students with an understanding of anti semitism anti zionism and anti israeli sentiment that they may face on campus. Hi there jordan rich and with me today dr. Rachel fish founding executive director of the foundation to combat anti-semitism. Rachel as a student at harvard. Some years back you encountered just what it is that we're talking about these podcasts. A series of incidents that clearly needed to be addressed. So please share that story with us. All there's a lot here to be learned when i was a student at harvard divinity school which is the oldest graduate institution at harvard. My first day of orientation was september eleventh and as you can imagine no one knew what was going on. We knew there were planes. That left from logan airport and that this horror happened in new york city and right outside the pentagon and pennsylvania area but we didn't have details and the divinity school which is a school that brings people from all over the world all different ethnicities all different backgrounds. We all came together for our first day of orientation and what we heard from the dean was that we really didn't know what had happened. But we could assume that. This had something to do with israel and i was taken completely aback. Now i'm a. I'm a girl from. Tennessee and boston was totally new to me at the time and in my mind harvard was this idealized place that no one could touch and i was shocked to hear someone say something. That was completely unfounded particularly in front of people who knew nothing about what he was suggesting. After the events of september eleventh there was a huge uptick in anti semitism coming from the arab world. If you recall there were television shows on state-sponsored television from egypt bringing together protocols of the elders of zion there were discussions that the israeli intelligence forces were the ones who were behind the attacks on september eleventh and because of the increase in anti semitism. I thought that the divinity school should organize a conference on global anti semitism and that there should be a place in which you would have this conversation. We had the conference. We have variety of individuals. Come and speak from a few different jewish organizations in advocacy organizations and from professors from within harvard university as well and one of the individuals who spoke mentioned that harvard had accepted funds from the president of the united arab emirates and that he was promoting anti-americanism in. Tim and i remember sitting in that room and looking around and most students weren't doing anything they didn't really seem to pay attention to what was said. And i recall that a physically sat up and wanted to know more and i went to the individual and i said can you tell me more about this and said we're trying to do some research and maybe you can do some and see what you learn. I actually remember on my way home that evening. Calling my parents. And i told my parents what i had heard and my father's response to me was. So what are you gonna do about it. And i felt a sense of responsibility then to do something and i began doing research and i wanted to understand what the relationship was between the president of the united arab emirates guy. I never heard of shack zayid bin. Sultan al yon and harvard divinity school. I pursued research for several months. And what i learned was that harvard had accepted funds from the president of the united arab emirates to create a professorship a position to have a fulltime faculty member who teach about islamic studies and teach about the arab world. I can tell you as someone who's studied this that that was a much needed position. I was extremely excited for that position. But i had now concerns about who would be hired. And then i began to do research about president of the uae. And what i learned was that this was not a democracy. He had ruled the country uncontested for you know three decades now. One of his sons rules the country that this was a place that had major human rights violations that this was a with migrant workers camel jockeying with children that were being stolen from bangladesh that this was a place That the government controlled every aspect of society and there were major inequality in terms of wealth and education. The ziyad center which was the major think tank of the arab league and supported by Zaidan one of his family members was also promoting anti americanism and anti semitism through their think tank and think tank for all the high school students. Listening is a place where you actually engage in thinking about ideas that could be used in order to make the world a better place but this place was actually inviting anti semitic professors from king faisal university in saudi arabia calling for the resurrection of the blood libel of jews. Using the blood of non jews for their holiday pastries they also invited individuals. Who suggested that the mossad. The israeli intelligence was behind the attacks of september eleventh. And they Presidents of the uae. saieed also gave the financial defense to a holocaust denier in france where it's illegal to deny the atrocities of the holocaust and he provided the money to support his legal case. So this was not the kind of place that was promoting positive change in the world and everything that was being done at. The center was being translated into a arabic to be disseminated throughout the arab world for educational purposes educational in air quotes with highly problematic. I brought all of this information to the dean of the divinity school to the university administration. And i asked them to return the funds. It was five million dollars and to seek reputable. It was going to be a total five million dollars was two and a half million dollars that was given and i wanted them to seek reputable funding in order to create the position. And i have to tell you. I had very little support. I had a couple of friends who are willing to help me. But that's really all. I needed the best advice i ever received was from one of my professors ruth weiss and she said all you need is a gang you need one or two people who care about this as much as you do and you just it your mission. So that's what i did and i led a campaign To have harbored return the funds and seek reputable funding and put a lot of pressure on them in order to do that and the ultimate end to the story is harvard. Returned the two and a half million dollars after about a year and they never took the remaining two and a half million dollars. That would be coming to them from the president of the uae and they sought different funding to create the position which they did and they now have a professor who heads position. Often is the case. Rachel it's follow the money in terms of institutions. Like that rachel. It's truly an inspiring story. What lessons can impart to upcoming students and students in college right now..

So that's what i did and i led a campaign To have harbored return the funds and seek reputable funding and put a lot of pressure on them in order to do that and the ultimate end to the story is harvard. Returned the two and a half million dollars after about a year and they never took the remaining two and a half million dollars. That would be coming to them from the president of the uae and they sought different funding to create the position which they did and they now have a professor who heads position. Often is the case. Rachel it's follow the money in terms of institutions. Like that rachel. It's truly an inspiring story. What lessons can impart to upcoming students and students in college right now..

"This tribe talk through podcasts. Such as this one webinars interactive online forums and firsthand experiences from current college students about what campus life is like today. Dr talk provides students with everything they need to know before they go to college. It introduces college students to the myriad of opportunities to build a meaningful jewish life on campus. Try talk also provides rising college students with an understanding of anti semitism anti zionism and anti israeli sentiment that they may face on campus. Hello i'm jordan rich. And i'm here today with dr rachel fish founding executive director of the foundation to combat. Anti-semitism rachel today. Let's examine the different types of anti jewish anti israel activism on campus. We've already explained in previous podcast. The overall problem but how does it break down. What are we see on on the ground. What are some of the different aspects of these anti-jewish antisemitic sentiments. So it's really important for young people to understand that. Antisemitism didn't start in the twenty first century that this didn't emerge with a particular presidential election that this didn't happen i at charlottesville. There really is a complex. History around the emergence of jew hatred. We i see jew hatred during the period of an anti jewish. Anti judaism sentiment. It's against the religion and we see this coming from medieval christian europe. We see this happening at a time in which jews are blamed for the killing of. Jesus we see this at a time in which jews are considered to be the ones who brought the bhubaneshwar plague in medieval europe. And we also see it in terms of the idea of the blood libel that jews are killing innocent children for the purpose of using that blood for their holiday. Pastries like the baking of matzah. This is the first sort of emergence of an anti judaism sentiment that we see in our history that transforms by the nineteenth century to a very different understanding. Ville hilmar who is a german an eighteen seventy nine point the term anti semitism. He comes up with it and he comes up with this term to be able to differentiate between those easterners or what are referred to as the orientals which are meant to be the jews against those pure europeans and this is a form of racial hatred towards the jewish people. What's interesting to note in eighteen. Seventy nine also when jews are trying to figure out in europe if they should try to be more french more german more european so that they can assimilate and a great and be accepted into the european societies in which they are living or if they should invest in this idea of zionism jewish nationalism and create their own nation state and how self-determination like people's so eighteen seventy nine is a very important year in jewish history so we had anti jewish sentiment around the religion. And now we have anti jew sentiment around the people this of course plays out to what we know as the horrors of the holocaust where those ideas of racial purity are taken to the farthest possible degree of annihilation. Now we see a different form of juhu hatred. Yes still about the people. It's a little bit about the religion at specific times. But it's very much about the jewish state the idea of israel which is representative off jews holding power real power the ability to make decisions the ability to have an army and that kind of hatred we see particularly on college campuses much more so than we do about racial purity but it's about jews holding power and israel being the representative that and there's a lot of anti israel sentiment and we can talk if you want jordan about the difference between you know critique of israeli policy versus hatred of the state of israel and the jewish people. Well i think we should address the d. s. movement and that is something that has taken on a virulent kind of anti israel anti-jew mode and when people get on campus. They're going to hear a lot in some cities and some areas about media's boycott divestment and sanctions toss more above beady s. Why this is something we have to really keep an eye on. Schorr be d. s exactly as you said started as a movement to boycott divest and have sanctions against israel specifically around the idea of israel controlling the west bank. And how the palestinians face real challenges living in the west bank. It started as a palestinian movement. What's interesting to note. Is that as a palestinian movement that started in the west bank. It has a nonviolent framing. And it's a way to try to create change the on the ground. However when the be movement started it was started by a man named omar barghouti who is a terrorist. He was in israeli prisons for a very long period of time for terrorist acts and his ideas were moved also to europe and america in order to find outsiders outside of the west bank. Who could encourage an advocate for boycott divestment and sanctions. the movement. outside of america tends to actually be very vitriolic it ultimately calls for the destruction and and the The legitimacy of the state of israel and ultimately calls for israel and israelis and jews who are zionist who support israel and any zionist. Whether you're jewish are not to have their voices silenced. This is a huge challenge on college. Campuses it absolutely is an anti semitic movement because anti zionism as it exists once you have a state is anti semitism. There's so many aspects to this. That are totally tied to the jewish culture in the jewish theology. Absolutely i mean. Listen in terms of how jews have had a connection to this place and idea of eritrea style. The land of israel medina tius l. The state of israel and honest l. The people of israel exists on multiple levels within jewish tradition jewish life juice pray facing eastward towards jerusalem towards hard sione mount zion jewish ritual. Practice is a very often has israel as central components. There are certain laws within the torah that you can only do when you are actually in the physical land of israel so it has absolutely had a crucial component in terms of jewish history and memory tradition and then on top of that the creation of the state of israel in nineteen forty eight was an absolute turning point in jewish history because jews have agency to control their own destiny and no longer be relying on hostesses in order to ensure their survival students should know upcoming current students. Should know that As you've well defined jews have been the subject of hatred and bigotry and i wanna say several great lies over the years. One of the lives of courses choose control politics the media banking etcetera are these kinds of traditional antisemitic. Feelings still being.
