Our Apologies to Hillel of Illinois
Last night it came to my attention that an article on our website written about JET implied negative criticism of Hillel (UIUC).
The clear implication of the words was disparaging. However, the remark was not intended to be negative. On that same web page, there is a positive statement about Hillel.
I truly regret the words I wrote and I apologize to the rabbi and the Hillel organization for the remark.
The fact that the article refers to things at least five years ago is irrelevant. There is no excuse for creating disunity where unity is so needed.
Those words were immediately removed from our website. For any people affected by those words I beg your forgiveness.
In addition, I wish well and bless all those working in Hillel of Illinois to bring Jewish students closer to their Jewish heritage. ᐧ
