Readers react to Brown Divest


Regarding the Community Voices Opinion “Our Judaism compels us to fight for divestment and against anti-Semitism” (May 2019), I say that we should all forgive Sam Frolichstein-Appel and Brian Solomon for their stance on this issue. 

They are two innocent and naïve 21- or 22-year-old college students, who have no idea how much their view is encouraging and not fighting against anti-Semitism. I am 83 years old and wonder how they will look upon the position they took in this period in their lives as they approach my age.
