Tufts community responds to antisemitic flyers at open forum

The Tufts community grappled with hatred on campus in an open forum at the Interfaith Center yesterday, the latest in a series of university responses to last week’s antisemitic incident at the Granoff Family Hillel Center. On Tuesday morning, Rabbi Naftali Brawer, Neubauer executive director of Tufts Hillel, discovered over two dozen posters plastered on the […]


Editorial: Hillel postering a blatant act of antisemitism

Close to two dozen posters critical of American and Israeli policy were found at the Tufts Granoff Family Hillel Center on Feb. 12. We believe these posters are intended to distress Jewish students. Antisemitism is a racist ideology that sees Jewish people as ‘other’. This ideology often manifests as anti-Jewish imagery and propaganda, including medieval […]


Posters with incendiary images, anti-Israel messages deface Tufts Hillel

Flyers depicting militarized pigs, including at least one with a caption calling for the destruction of “ISRAELI APARTHEID FORCES AND AMERIKKKAN [sic] PIGS WHICH FUND IT,” were discovered yesterday morning on the exterior of Granoff Family Hillel Center.

Former Tufts Hillel president Harry Weissman speaks on ‘anti-occupation’ movement IfNotNow

Harry Weissman (LA ’17) was the former president of Tufts Hillel and is currently an active member of IfNotNow, a national movement “to end American Jewish support for the occupation.” IfNotNow has organized several demonstrations in Boston over the past year, such as an anti-Semitism vigil in August, a rally calling for the release of […]


Murphy’s Law: Tufts Secrets: The Ring of Gyges

Tufts has always been a campus of strong views and outspoken opinions, yet during my time here, those thoughts have traditionally been expressed publicly, with the speaker held accountable for their discourse. However, the recently popular Facebook page “Tufts Secrets” is beginning to show signs of the toxicity of which we are capable when we […]


Editorial: With Charlottesville, we must do more than just remember

The white supremacist rally that took place in Charlottesville is not hard to condemn. Torch-bearing individuals, as seen in VICE’s documentary, paraded through the streets yelling “Jews will not replace us.” Neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan supporters spewed veiled (and not-so veiled) threats of genocide, including David Duke championing “ethnic cleansing.” “White pride” rooted in […]

Letter to the Editor: My parents, my children

Editor’s Note: This letter is in response to a resolution passed by the Tufts Community Union Senate on Sunday night that called for the university to divest from four companies it says are involved in the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.

Op-ed: Democracy died in darkness at Tufts

In the dead of night on April 10, the Tufts Community Union (TCU) Senate passed a resolution forced through in ignorance of the democratic process and, ironically, disenfranchised hundreds of Tufts students. Regardless of anyone’s thoughts about the merit or demerit of the resolution, the process in which it was accelerated through the Senate shows […]


Art-à-Porter: John Galliano and rococo fashion

John Galliano, arguably one of the most famous individuals from the British overseas territory of Gibraltar, is quite possibly the fashion designer who has best embodied the essence of 19th century European royalty in his gowns. As the head designer of Dior for 15 straight years (1996–2011) and the current creative director of Maison Margiela, Galliano has […]
