Skip to comments.Another food fight at Harvard (That diversity, pluralism and multi-culti thing again...)
Posted on 11/20/2012 7:09:27 AM PST by SeekAndFind
The great minds at Harvard University just can't seem to get this diversity, pluralism and multi culti thing right. Not to mention inclusiveness. And when combined with something as difficult as food--well, Harvard just seems to collapse.
Recently, Harvard succumbed after an Arab student went on a hate filled rant, complaining that hummus wasn't Israeli but Arab, or at least Mediterranean; labeling it Israeli was another sign of Israeli domination.
Then Harvard University Dining Service (HUDS) decided that because kosher food is more expensive than non kosher food--and it is--only Jews should be allowed to eat in the Harvard Hillel House's kosher kitchen.
Hillel, found on many college campuses, provides programming, resources and services for Jewish students, faculty and staff. While naturally aimed at Jews, Hillels are welcoming and do not prohibit non Jews.
A sign posted Nov. 9 at the entrance of the dining hall limited entry to "a member or an invited guest of Harvard's diverse Jewish community," the Harvard Crimson reported.
"The most important part of Hillel's mission is hospitality," Harvard Hillel's executive director, Rabbi Jonah Steinberg, told the Crimson. "[The restriction] creates conflict with our inclusive and welcoming environment, but I understand HUDS's concern about its budget."
According to Steinberg, who has been in contact with HUDS, kosher meals at Hillel cost twice as much as meals in other dining halls. "I don't know how you could visually single out individuals as belonging or not belonging in a community," Steinberg said. "I just hope we will work out a way with HUDS to make Hillel both a cost-efficient and a welcoming institution."
While keeping kosher has many advantages, cost efficiency is not usually one of them. But the problem has been solved in a Harvard way--just a misunderstanding, "inartfully worded"...

Harvard is the American root of all evil.
VERY artfully worded, I would say.
They jsut got caught
One resolution that too me way too long to establish is that I will never, ever vote for a graduate of an Ivy League university again. A plague on all their houses.
I read the student’s letter in a related story. It was about as histrionic, self-absorbed, and full of antisemitism as you might expect. A search of her name (Sara El-Yafi) turned up a couple of Arab blogs who claim that she and her family were ‘dedicated advocates’ of the Palestinian cause, or some such rot.
Why would anyone not obligated to eat kosher food want to eat it?
Besides, there is no such thing as kosher spare ribs.
Someone's getting off on the jealousy expressed by inferior cultures...

Here's "Harvard": We didn't build these glorious buildings to show you how superior we are... We don't charge this outragouse tuition to assure you you're a member of the elite... We don't bring smart 'but poor' among to to prop up your lame egos... no, we really believe it's all equal... Did you notice my 'working class' blue jeans cost what your dad makes in a week?
Yeah, the land of liberal elite creepy...
Harvard had an early history of excluding Jews, as did the other Ivy League schools. They were establishment schools, and the establishment back then excluded Jews—and Irish. Then that changed, I think some time in the 1960s.
Hillel House was there when I was at Harvard, and it did indeed offer hospitality and a chance for other Harvard students to meet with Jewish students and learn something about their customs.
I went to a couple of memorial services for dead Jewish friends about that time, and I think one of them was at Hillel House. It was a wonderful experience.
Negros are Jewish surrogates. The Civil Rights movement was fought by the Negros for the benefit of the Jews.
Neither race nor creed.......
Beef ribs slow roasted in the appropriate BBQ sauce are delightful.
The last paragraph is hilarious.
“Next, to prove their dining diversity and food inclusiveness, HUDS will finally offer authentic Native American cuisine based on heirloom recipes from prized Native American scholar and now senator elect, Elizabeth Warren.”
All who wish to enter here will expose their genitals for inspection to determine eligibility, or submit to a blood test for evidence of Jewish blood.
Sounds like a nazi-inspired scheme to get all of the Jews in one place at the same time.
