In response to President Trump’s expected Executive Order, which will protect Jews on college campuses as a nationality, Rabbi Pesach Lerner, President of the Coalition for Jewish Values, made the following statement:

President Trump is moving to combat Anti-Semitism in a situation where it is sorely needed. Jews are indeed a nationality, and Jewish students have faced increasingly-obvious bias on campus. The fact that it has been thinly disguised as “anti-Israel” activity is no excuse for bigotry, and adopting the definition of Anti-Semitism used by the State Department is the correct response. The President deserves our thanks for doing what is right and just.
