A new survey from Hillel International reveals that 37% of Jewish college students in the US feel the need to hide their Jewish identity due to safety concerns. This highlights the growing challenges and fears faced by Jewish students, particularly following recent antisemitic incidents. Hillel International has expressed deep concern and called on university administrations to address these issues and provide a safer environment. The survey also found that 84% of Jewish students are emotionally affected by the situation in Israel and Gaza, with many reporting feelings of sadness and fear. Hillel International is taking steps to support Jewish students by organizing solidarity events, enhancing campus security, and offering mental health resources.
