Sad admission of insolvency

The World Union of Jewish Students, an advocacy organization with an 83 year history, is near insolvency.

The first president of the WUJS was Albert Einstein.

The organization's decline since that day has, it appears, been calamitous. Here's a story on the particulars.


It sounds to me like an organization that still has a role to play in a world where anti-Semitism continues to be a threat (and denying or belittling the Holocaust has become a sport in some quarters.)

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
