University compensates Jewish student for anti-Semitism

A Jewish student has received an apology and payment of £1,000 (US$1,330) from the University of York Students' Union after complaining of anti-Semitism, reports The Telegraph.

Law student Zachary Confino (21) was offered the four-figure sum after two years of battling anti-Semitism from students whilst studying at the university. It is understood that Confino, who narrowly missed out on a first class degree and had suffered with stress, had been racially abused and bullied.

Jonathan Sacerdoti, director of communications at the Campaign Against Antisemitism, praised Confino's "incredible strength and dedication" but said that the union's apology and payment of compensation was not enough. He said: "It should not be necessary for individual Jewish students to fight lengthy battles with their university unions over the course of many months or years in order to have Jew-hatred dealt with properly."
