The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle: University of Wisconsin Student Gives Ideas on Problem of Jews at University

By Norman De Nosaquo

Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, February 1924

A Jewish student at the University of Wisconsin contributes a letter to the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle in January, 1924, responding to a previous letter published in the newspaper. The author defends the Jewish student population at the University of Wisconsin, declaring that such Jews do not engage with Jewish communal life because communal institutions have no interest in accommodating their specific requests. As well, he refutes the stereotype that members of Jewish fraternities "develop a type of snobbery toward anything Jewish;" on the contrary, he claims that such groups are the only avenue for the advancement of Jewish causes on campus. Finally, the author petitions citizens throughout Wisconsin to support Jewish life on campus in order to provide for the needs of every Jewish student in the state.
