  • January 31, 2017 – Beloit College Jewish Student (Ethan) “I got home [and] I saw an email that said a note had been placed under a student’s door in Peet. The note said, “Kike, You should be gassed for what you say & do on this campus. Be worried CUNT”…The next morning as I was leaving home I decided to wear a yarmulka, something that I have not done in public for years. I wanted to hide my fear behind courage. I wanted this person to know that they could not make me, or the other Jews on campus, cower.” Read more
  • January 30, 2017 – Beloit College Student (Brett) “I think right now, it’s most important to listen to Jewish voices on campus. It’s crucial not to turn this incident into a witchhunt that reaches it’s climax by finding one person. Anti-Semitism is systematic and didn’t just start with one note, so it won’t be solved outright by locating this person…Making the event centered around finding the culprit instead of dealing with the underlying issues is taking away from Jewish people voicing concerns about anti-Semitism.” Read more
