On Monday, the University of California Board of Regents heard public input on whether it should adopt a policy against intolerance. The policy comes in response to reports of anti-Semitism on UC campuses. Jewish groups want the UC system to adopt the U.S. State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism, which includes a denial of Israel’s right to exist. But critics say the definition is too broad and would shutter free speech.
