Members of IfNotNow, a division of young Jewish members, met outside the steps of the new Rutgers Hillel building this past Thursday night to protest the institution's stance on the Israeli occupation of the West Banks and Gaza. An estimated 10 students attended the rally. The protest stemmed from Islamophobic comments previously made by Rutgers Hillel Director Andrew Getraer and an ongoing failure to forge a meaningful relationship with Jewish and non-Jewish groups critical of the occupation, according to the organization's press release.Gilad Abarbanel, a School of Arts and Sciences junior and member of IfNotNow, said Hillel pronounces itself as an apolitical home for Jewish students while it maintains its own agenda — specifically, the position Hillel has on the occupation of Palestine and the reluctance to openly discuss the topic.By occupation, the organization refers to the enforcement of Israeli military in parts of the West Bank area and the expansion of new settlements that were not present prior to Israel acquiring the land, Abarbanel said.Similar to how an individual from the United States identifies as an American, so too do members of the Jewish community identify with Judaism, Abarbanel said.
