The Jewish Chronicle

Model response


The vote last week by more than 200 undergradu­ates at Essex University against the establishm­ent of a Jewish Society was shocking. But the reaction of the Vice Chancellor, Professor Anthony Forster, was a model of its kind. There was no equivocati­on and no excuses. Within a day of the story breaking, he acted himself to ensure the JSoc was set up, establishe­d a meaningful review into the background to the vote and made all the right noises. Other Vice Chancellor­s should take note.
