Twenty-seven percent of New York University’s undergraduate student population is Jewish, and the Manhattan private school was also the top choice for Jewish students nationwide, a survey by Hillel International of the top choices for Jewish students among private and public schools revealed.

At the top of the public schools list was Rutgers University, in New Jersey, where the 6,400 Jewish students made up 19% of the undergraduate population.

Next on the list of public schools was University of Central Florida, making the school’s 6,000 Jewish students 12 percent of the total undergrad population. The University of Maryland (5,800, 22%), Pennsylvania State University (5,000, 12%) and University of Florida, Gainsville (5,000, 15%), rounded out the top five choices among Jewish students in 2014, according to the list.

A full 29% of the undergrad population at CUNY, Brooklyn College, was Jewish.

Among private schools, Boston University was the next most popular choice, after NYU, with 3,500 Jewish students. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 100% of Yeshiva University’s 3,076 undergraduate population was Jewish, though only 20% of its graduate student population belonged to the Jewish faith.

Cornell University (3,000, 21%) and Washington DC’s George Washington University (3,000, 29%) rounded off the top five choices for private schools.

A full 40% of the all-women’s school, Barnard College (also in Manhattan) were Jewish students — 1,000 of 2,500 students.

  • Prediction:-

    Chosen People are the Demonstration Nation of the world to teach us the Moral Laws through practical suffering when their Blind Guides, the Rabbis led their spiritually blind Disciples or students into the Pits of Holocausts. Here is what we can predict in the Light of Matt. 13v24-30:-

    Never mind, we are in the Tribulation Period and the ATOMIC WAR is expected on 14 May, 2023 when Israel shall be 75 years old. This is how it will happen:-

    Israel was established on 14 May, 1948 + 70 years of Protection as the Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. If anyone knows the exact date of destruction, I would appreciate. By this time, there will be a mass movement of the Jews outwardly towards Israel in which the Jews of Semitic race would be bundled up – Matt. 13v24-30. Then, Israel would suffer attacks from the circumcised Gentiles, the fake sons of Abraham TILL 14 May, 2023. Remember that Circumcision is the tribal mark of Abraham to Isaac only and not to Ishmael, a son born of the slave woman. The greedy
    Temple Priests created these fake sons of Abraham and Angel Stephen warned them of the end results but they killed him.

    Looking for a Protestant Priest called Levi Karodi in Cluj. I met him about 5 years ago in Cluj. He arranged my accommodation in the Protestant University. I would be glad to hear others who are open-minded. Please send me his contact.

    I have over 5100 Youtube Videos to help you understand the subject by criticising my mistakes. In the spiritual Field, you must renew your Innerman, the Christ every day; otherwise you are dead in letters super donkey carrying the Holy Books. Gospel flows from your own heart and not from the dead letters of the Holy Books.

    Your own choice; Inshmullah Islam of Shia Sunni Sharia or Inshallah Islam of Noor Free of Sharia.

    Real Islam is of Allah, Sun, Primary Source of Light called NOOR. This Moon and Star Islam of Mullahs, Inshmullah, is of the Satan called Al-Djmar Al-Aksa and it is bearing fruits in Shia and Sunni of men and not of Allah. Real Islam is ba ilah or son of Man or of the tribal natural father to Ba Al-Ilah, our Supernatural Father Noor that is not Shia or Sunni. La-Ilah Islam is of Satan and that is why Kabah is kept to the left hand during going around for seven times. For greater details, visit my YouTube videos on Hajj; channel nijjhar1.

    Youtube Video on this topic:-

    Hi Brethren,

    Remember that prayers were done to the demiurge Yahweh whilst our living Father within us only understands His Praises Preached in Gospel Truth. Tell me what the word “YeShua” stands for? The meaning of this very name can bring Peace in the world and these migrants can stay in their countries if they are explained, “Every plant which my heavenly father didn’t plant shall be uprooted by the roots”. So, with these fanciful robes and keeping their monks mute and deaf, the Abbotts have become Anti-Christs. Here is a video explaining this:-

    These Monks and Abbotts buried in useless prayers and fasting deaf to the Season of Preaching Gospel, they themselves cannot get Salvation then how could they offer Salvation to others. They are Utter Blind leading the Blinds into UTTER DARKNESS.

    Alas, most Jewish students do not (at least openly) support Israel. There is a Facebook page for people to discuss things in “secret”, and almost every post about the Arab-Israeli conflict has 80% support for Palestine and maybe 15% for Israel.

  • Reform School

    With so many ‘Acadaemia Nuts’ infesting our top university faculties, is it surprising J Street’s self-hating Jews so dominate the political landscape of the 21st century Obamanation known as Obamerica? The empty “Yiddisher Cup” characterizing today’s ‘Unhidden Yidden’ speaks volumes to why good jobs have fled U.S. shores in droves. Unlike Yeshiva University, “attending NYJew” is not a compliment.

  • LJ kimor

    SUNY Binghamton has an enormous Jewish Student population. I suspect somewhere between 20-30% of the undergraduate students are Jewish. The school closes on all major Jewish holidays

  • steven L

    That does not imply that these students are supporting Israel!!!
    Most Am. Jews do not care about Israel, like the majority of the world, but they care about what IL bring them!!!

  • Jane S. Gabin

    Please note that many Jewish students enjoy a very rich Jewish life at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA; Franklin & Marshall, in Lancaster, PA; and Brandeis, in Waltham, MA.

    Boston Univeristy? The same Boston University that now has a course in its Education Department that FORCES Jewish students to role-play being Hamas/PLO members so that they may “empathize” with them?

    If you are not a self-loathing Jew, you really need to BDS Boston University.

    What happened to Brandeis?!
