SJP, J Street U Criticize Hillel In Similar Letters

The University of Vermont (UVM) chapters of J Street and the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) released two separate but similar statements this month condemning UVM Hillel, a local chapter of an international Jewish student group. Within 90 minutes of each other, both called out UVM Hillel for accepting funding from the Maccabee Task Force (MTF), raising questions about their coordination on this apparent campaign to demonize support for Israel.
 
A portion of the $100,000 grant UVM Hillel was offered from MTF, which is devoted to fighting against the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, will reportedly be used to organize a trip to Israel for UVM students.
