Stories from the November 6, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Silent defiance

Since the outbreak of violence in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the GW Jewish community has remained proud and ardent in its support for Israel. Yet except for bi-partisan calls for peace, it has remained largely silent. In the face of graphic photos deriding Israel posted on campus walls, as posters professing the truth […]

A statement in Senate explains inactivity, (Oct. 30, p.11) is incorrectly attributed to Josh Friedman. Josh Rothstein, Academic Affairs Committee chair for the Columbian School of Arts and Sciences provided the information.

It is a museum devoted to Shakespeare’s legacy, a lively center for the literary and performing arts and a center for the revitalization of the humanities.
