My professional and personal life converge over Rutgers — as the NJ state university, it’s in our coverage area, and my son isa senior there studying engineering. Rutgers Hillel has been the center of a lot of our reporting, most notably on allegations of anti-Israel activity on campus. Many of these allegations are overheated, although Hillel has done a fine job of keeping them in proper perspective.
The frisbee (flying disc, to be more precise; it’s not a WHAM-O®) also makes me think of my son, who sings in the campus Jewish a cappella choir and plays on one of the Rutgers Ultimate Frisbee teams.
