Wexner Foundation Cuts Ties with Harvard Over Israel Response

via CampusMania on Youtube

The Wexner Foundation, a Jewish philanthropic institution, has severed ties with Harvard University due to its weak response to the terror attack by Hamas that killed 1,400 people in Israel.

The foundation has sponsored Israeli public affairs professionals to study at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government for many years.

However, after several Harvard student organizations blamed Israel for the attack and the university administration failed to distance itself from these statements, the foundation decided to cut its financial and programmatic relationships with Harvard.

“We are stunned and sickened at the dismal failure of Harvard’s leadership to take a clear and unequivocal stand against the barbaric murders of innocent Israeli civilians by terrorists last Saturday, the Sabbath and a festival day,” the letter read.

“Since then, many of our Israel Fellows no longer feel marginalized at HKS [Havard Kennedy School]. They feel abandoned. … Our core values and those of Harvard no longer align.”

“HKS is no longer a place where Israeli leaders can go to develop the necessary skills to address the very real political and societal challenges they face.”

Israeli billionaire Idan Ofer also resigned from the board of Harvard’s Kennedy School for similar reasons.
