The leader of Hillel International and Princeton University’s Hillel branch issued an apology for scrapping a Nov. 6 speech by Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely.

“Unfortunately, we did not treat the Israeli deputy foreign minister with the respect that her office deserves, and postponed the event,” Eric Fingerhut, president and CEO of Hillel International, and Rabbi Julie Roth, executive director of the Center for Jewish Life at Princeton, wrote in an op-ed for The Jerusalem Post that was published Nov. 7.
