ST. LOUIS, Mo. –  The tent movement is spreading.

In Israel, tent cities are popping up throughout the country as part of a broad social protest against high housing prices in the Jewish state.

In America, Hillel just announced it is planning to set up tents at 20 campuses across the country this fall as places for respectful dialogue about Israel and Middle East issues.

"The purpose of the tent is to grapple with the challenges that Israel is facing and that will play out on college campuses,” said Sharon Ashley, head of the recently formed Center for Israel Engagement, which operates under Hillel’s auspices.
