The American Jewish Committee is looking to confront campus anti-Semitism with the hiring of a new Assistant Director of Campus Affairs.

Jacob Levkowicz, the first holder of that office, will "address the rise in activities targeting Israel and its campus supporters across the country, and monitor and combat incidents of anti-Semitism," the AJC said in a statement.“The American college campus has become a front-line battleground for those who seek to denigrate Israel and to undermine the Middle East’s only true democracy,” said Daniel Elbaum, AJC Assistant Executive Director and Director of Regional Offices, who will supervise the effort.
