Op-Ed: JSA Board Statement on Flyering and Upcoming Eli Valley Events

The Jewish Student Association Board expresses deep concern about the upcoming set of events hosted by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) featuring Eli Valley, a Jewish political cartoonist who is known for controversial and inflammatory depictions of prominent Jewish figures. Last week, SJP posted flyers in a number of residential areas featuring Valley’s cartoons to advertise their event. Many students were alarmed to find these images, which portray Jews offensively and grossly mischaracterize Jewish values, in their residential environments. Some students were horrified to find flyers that placed Valley’s work side-by-side with a piece of 1930s-era Nazi propaganda—a despicable image to disseminate on campus, regardless of intent.
