October 16, 2011 17:55

The Israel Law Center (Shurat Hadin) is set to launch a campus hotline on Monday, to help Jewish student victims of college anti-Semitism.

According to attorney Kenneth A. Leitner, the Law Center's director of American affairs, students will be able to call the hotline to report incidents of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel acts on US college campuses, and the Law Center will use the data to take legal action against colleges believed to be breaching Jewish students' legal rights, he added.

"It is time for us to go on the legal offensive," said Leitner, who noted that the trend of campus anti-Semitism is growing. "We want Jewish students to know that there is a number to call when they are victimized by  extremist groups promoting anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hate on American college campuses."

Students in the US can call the Israel Law Center Campus Hotline on (718) 907-9258.
