A group of Jewish students have filed a lawsuit against New York University (NYU), alleging the school has allowed a climate of anti-Semitism to fester on campus, leaving Jewish students feeling “under siege.”
Bella Ingber, Sabrina Maslavi, and Saul Tawil, all juniors, filed their suit on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.
The lawsuit accuses NYU of violating federal civil rights law by permitting a hostile environment that subjects Jewish students to anti-Semitic discrimination, harassment, and intimidation. Anti-Semitism on campus has increased in the wake of Palestinian terror group Hamas’ attack on Israeli civilians last month, the suit claims.
On October 7, Hamas launched deadly terrorist attacks on Israel that killed more than 1,200 people, including women and children. Israel has responded with airstrikes and a ground offensive.
