Tammi Rossman-Benjamin is cofounder and director of AMCHA Initiative, a non-profit organization that investigates, documents and combats anti-Semitism at institutions of higher education in America, and was a faculty member in Hebrew and Jewish Studies at the University of California from 1996 – 2016. She writes, researches, advocates and lectures widely on campus anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism, and academic freedom, and has been widely published. In 2016, Rossman-Benjamin led a coalition of 50 Jewish and education advocacy groups that successfully lobbied the University of California to adopt a landmark intolerance policy condemning “antisemitism and antisemitic forms of anti-Zionism.” She is currently working with administrators at other universities to adopt similar measures to protect Jewish students.
