Passover column offensive

By Esther Patt

I do not know why some Jewish people like Scott Green think that because he is Jewish, it is acceptable for him to write an offensive column like the one that appeared in the April 17 Daily Illini denigrating Jewish people and the Jewish religion. Perhaps he thinks other Jewish people who know what the holiday is actually about will find the column humorous. I did not. It is my hope that The Daily Illini will devote a little space to an accurate explanation of Pesach, the Jewish holiday that the non-Jewish world refers to as “Passover.”
