Agudath Israel of California completed a busy week in Sacramento, working on a number of pieces of legislation. In addition to the ongoing involvement in SB 128, the Aid in Dying legislation, which will be heard in the Assembly Health Committee next week, Agudath Israel sent a strong letter supporting Senate Concurrent Resolution 35 which would urge each University of California campus to adopt a resolution condemning all forms of anti-Semitism and racism, and would condemn any act of anti-Semitism at all publicly-funded schools in California. The resolution, which was sponsored by State Senator Jeff Stone (R-Temecula), uses the US State Department definition of anti-Semitism which includes much of the anti-Israel rhetoric from campus groups. As expected, those very groups are protesting this definition as being overly-broad, Some even complained about the need to have a resolution about Jews at all. Agudath Israel will continue to be actively involved with other Jewish groups to move the resolution forward in its current form.
