The warning was sent to the chapters as Palestinians continue to target Jews in Israel.
The Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi issued a warning about “rising anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity” to its 185 chapters on U.S. college campuses.
The AEPi warning, sent Thursday, was prompted by the surge of violence in Israel. Several prominent anti-Semitic incidents took place on college campuses after the Gaza war in 2014, and the AEPi executive director, Andrew Borans, said he fears the pattern could repeat itself in the wake of daily violent attacks between Palestinians and Israelis in recent weeks.
“Unfortunately, we’ve already seen a number of incidences of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish rhetoric and violence on campuses this fall,” Borans said. “Our brothers are prominent leaders in their campus Jewish communities and are often among the most active pro-Israel advocates around. … With violence against Israel once more on the rise, we are well-aware that such heinous actions often make their ways to our college campuses next.
“We are also, obviously, very concerned for our brothers in Israel,” he added.
