    OFJCC Palo ALto JCCAlyza Lewin, a leading voice in the fight against antisemitism on college campuses, will address the problems Jewish students and faculty are currently experiencing.

    Ms. Lewin is the President of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights under Law, a nonprofit civil rights organization that engages in legal advocacy, research and education to combat antisemitism.

    According to the Brandeis Center's recent survey, 65% of Jewish students who claim a strong sense of Jewish identity and connection to Israel, feel unsafe and 50% actively hide their identity on campus.

    Ms. Lewin and the Brandeis Center represent students and faculty who have been victimized by antisemitism and anti-Zionism. Ms. Lewin was awarded the American Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists Distinguished Pursuit of Justice Award in January 2020 for her impressive legal accomplishments.

    In 2014, Ms. Lewin argued Zivotofsky vs. Kerry before the US Supreme Court, winning the right for American citizens born in Jerusalem to list Israel as their place of birth on their US passports.

    With her father, Nathan Lewin, Ms. Lewin represented the Boim family in its landmark civil tort litigation which established the right of American victims of terror to obtain damages under American law against organizations that knowingly provide financial support to international terrorist groups.

    We hope that you will join us in what will be a highly informative and inspiring talk. There will be ample time for questions and answers.

    The talk is presented in partnership with Beth Am Jewish and Israel Advocacy Committee (JIAC).
