ABSTRACT
The authors discuss the existence of pluralism in Hillel, the Foundation for Jewish campus life in the U.S., and its need to extend to Israel. According to the authors, pluralism does not happen in Israel, and students who express their feelings toward Zionism or boycott Israeli products are not welcome in their campus Jewish community and feel alienated. They suggest Israel should gather feedback from students and re-evaluate the guidelines in making political pluralism a priority.
