400 young adults from New York's Russian-speaking Jewish community attended a Limmud FSU conference at Columbia University Sunday.

During the event, an anti – BDS protest took place in the center of the campus, led by Limmud FSU Chairman Matthew Bronfman, Rabbi Marc Schneier, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin and more.

The conference included dozens of lectures, sessions, panels and performances on wide range of topics, including a lecture by Professor Alan Dershowitz on BDS and Israel.

Limmud FSU founder Chaim Chesler said: "We’re are extremely happy to be here for the first time ever at Columbia University, on the 70th anniversary of Israel, to celebrate with hundreds of Jews despite the helplessness of BDS efforts to boycott the Jewish state”.
