Though Hillel president Sara Kantor ’14 did not attend the event, she did not agree with the manner in which the conference was presented.
“Harvard’s name has a certain power and it seemed to be presented as a Harvard one-state conference,” Kantor, who is also a Crimson arts writer, said. “It lends a certain legitimacy that this conference didn’t necessarily have.”
At the end of the conference, Moor said that the goal of the discussion was not to promote animosity between two groups, but to focus on the provision of human rights and equality at all times.
“This conference has been about what to do about reconciling between two peoples who deserve better,” Moor said.
