Wednesday’s The Education News says “Jews are having a problem with this provost. He’s making it harder and harder to bring in Jews. He doesn’t want Jews,” said Hershy Friedman, deputy chairman of the Business Department. (Brooklyn College).
Critics cited cases in which they claim Jewish professors were passed over despite being recommended by faculty screening panels. Four cases were cited.
Wednesday’s The NY Post said “CUNY Chancellor Mathew Goldstein ordered a legal review of explosive accusations of job discrimination against female Jewish professors at Brooklyn College, sources said yesterday.”
A CUNY University insider said the review is being done out of an abundance of caution and he remains skeptical of the discrimination claims. Goldstein’s move comes as 20 elected city and state lawmakers signed a letter drafted by Assemblyman Dov Hikind calling for an independent probe.
