Jews at the Helm of Ostensibly non-Jewish Organizations

Some valid questions about Jewish influence: to what degree do these people have allegiance to the Jewish victimology tradition, by extension to what degree do they hold dear the state of Israel and/or other Judeocentric interests within their respective organization’s policy? Also, to what degree do they reflect a “Jewish view of the world,” so popularly declared as something very real in Jewish circles — particularly in deconstructing and/or subverting the non-Jewish social, cultural, and political order? To what extent are these people activists in such public policy socialization processes, sensitizing the public to Jewish interests and concerns?

“In February 2001, Goldberg was sentenced to five years probation for obtaining child pornography by mail. ‘When the FBI and police knocked on his door, it was the end of Gary Goldberg, chief executive of the American Corn Growers Association,’ The Tulsa World reported. ‘Now and forever, itís Gary Goldberg, convicted sex offender.’ Goldberg, who once rubbed elbows with senators and even visited President Clinton in the White House, now says: ‘Iím a felon. They donít let felons in the Oval Office.’ Goldbergís crime led to a very public resignation from his high-profile ACGA role. But the organization did not divorce itself of Goldbergentirely: he now serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the ACGA-linked American Corn Growers Foundation, where he remains in charge of fundraising and glad-handing the big-money foundations that keep ACGA afloat. Goldberg, a Tulsa corn grower, served as CEO of ACGA for three years and National President for five.

He pointed out that the structure of the military community is, in fact, quite similar to the Jewish community … . Although his position as Secretary of the Navy is rare for a civilian officer, the military offers many jobs for civilians.”

(Current or recent)

Ronald Ehrenberg, the Irving M. Ives Professor of Industrial and Labor Relations and vice president for academic programs, planning and budgeting, drew mainly from his personal experiences and his background as a Jew to demonstrate the continued need for affirmative action programs … . Six out of eight Ivy League universities in recent years have had Jewish presidents, Ehrenberg said.”

ďItís fascinating,Ē observed President James O. Freedman in the February 11 Los Angeles Times, ďthat there was not a Jewish president of a major university ó with one or two exceptions ó until about 15 years ago. And then all of a sudden ó without notice ó there are Jewish presidents now at dozens of major institutions.Ē Among all those presidents, however, Freedman remains among the most outspoken on Jewish issues in higher education. Through a series of public comments, notably his 1990 attack on the Dartmouth ReviewFreedmanhas repeatedly used his ethnicity to make a name for himself in academic circles. The Los Angeles Timesinterview concerned his comments at the opening of the Roth Center for Jewish Life, in which he exposed Dartmouthís history of anti-Semitism.”

Tufts University,

“Lawrence S. Bacow, recently installed as president of Tufts University, likes to say that the naming of a Jewish college president is hardly newsworthy anymore. After all, MIT named Jerry Weisner in 1970, and since then Jewish presidents have reigned at prestigious institutions from Dartmouth to Harvard, Penn to Princeton … And, the new Tufts head boasts, every door of the President’s mansion on the Medford campus now hosts a mezzuzah, while the kitchen has been koshered for his family’s use. Bacow‘s strong commitment to Judaism and the Jewish community is clear from his positions as a director of the Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly and a trustee of Hebrew College, and his wife’s role as a trustee of Temple Emmanuel in Newton. He believes it is important for American Jews to ‘speak up on behalf of Israel and to show their support visibly,’ yet he understands the complexities of the situation.”

Harvard University,

President: Lawrence Summers (replaced Neil Rudenstine)
“I speak with you today not as President of the University but as a concerned member of our community about something that I never thought I would become seriously worried about — the issue of anti-Semitism. I am Jewish, identified but hardly devout.”

In this way, we express the essential inter-relatedness between our own actions and the larger community in and for which we act.”

* “[T]he University of Pennsylvania will not support divestment from Israel, boycotts of Israeli scholars and scientists, or any effort to stifle the free expression of diverse ideas and opinions about the Middle East conflict by our faculty and students.”

From a correspondent: “When I was at the University of Arizona in the 1980s, the president, Henry Koffler, was a Jew and an open supporter of the JDL [Jewish Defense League], which was strong there. He also sat on the board of the Office of Technology Assessment. He now is the chairman of the U of A Foundation, which manages endowments.”


(Note: a pillar of “interfaith” Jewish-Christian organizations tends to be the propagandizing of Christian sensitization to Jewish concerns about “anti-Semitism” (underscoring alleged Christian blame for the “Holocaust”), and revision of historical Christian religious texts to accommodate Jewish demands. These types of organizations are typically constructed towards Christian sympathy of Jewish hostility to Christianity. Note that at least two organization directors are rabbis at Christian colleges — a situation that is reciprocally (read: “priest”) unthinkable at a Jewish center of higher learning. Interfaith “dialogue” with Jewry is essentially Christian CONCESSION to Jewish perspective, never the other way around.)
