Report details decades of sexual harassment at Hebrew Union College

A report released by the Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion found decades of sexual harassment accusations across all four branches of the college.

A report released in early November by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion found decades of sexual harassment accusations as well as other forms of misconduct across all four campuses of the Reform Jewish movement's seminary.

The Cincinnati campus, located in CUF, a neighborhood consisting of Clifton Heights, University Heights and Fairview, was described in the report "as having an engrained culture of favoritism and politics."

The report, first published on HUC-JIR's website on Nov. 9, was conducted independently by Morgan Lewis, a law firm located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Sexual misconduct, discrimination accusations span back to the 1970s

A special committee of the board of governors for HUC-JIR reached out to Morgan Lewis in April after several reports of sexual misconduct and discrimination were posted on social media following the death of Michael Cook, a well-known HUC-JIR professor at the Cincinnati campus. The accusations were directed at Cook and other faculty members of HUC-JIR.
