THIS DAY IN DAILY HISTORY

Controversial rabbi addresses students

November 23, 1982 — Amid controversy and death threats for his supporters, Rabbi Meir Kahane spoke to a group of students at the Michigan League.

The rabbi’s lecture, calling out Jewish leaders for being chosen for their money and not their piety, and the dangerous situation surrounding it, caused the University Activities Center to cancel the event and to move to the League.

Kahane expressed disappointment that his lecture had been cancelled, questioning the University’s role as an institution of academic freedom.

Before his speech, Kahane’s contact in Ann Arbor, Ron Glassman, claimed that he had received an anonymous life-threatening letter and others also reported similar incidents.
