Harvard antisemitism task force co-chair resigns in another group setback

Harvard Business School Professor Raffaella Sadun is now the second person to step down from her position on a Harvard antisemitism task force.

The Harvard Crimson reported that Interim Harvard President Alan M. Garber confirmed the news in a statement.

“Professor Sadun has expressed her desire to refocus her efforts on her research, teaching and administrative responsibilities at HBS,” Garber wrote. “Her insights and passion for this work have helped shape the mandate for the task force and how it can best productively advance the important work ahead.”

In a separate statement, Sadun wrote, “I am grateful to have had the opportunity to help advance the vital work to combat antisemitism and believe that President Garber has assembled an excellent task force. I will continue to support efforts to tackle antisemitism at Harvard in any way I can from my faculty position.”

Garber originally appointed Sadun in January to lead the task force as a co-chair in January. She will be replaced by Jared Ellias, a law professor.

Sadun reportedly decided to step down because she felt Harvard wouldn’t commit to implementing the task force’s ideas, and had been frustrated by the antisemitism task force for a while.

A person close to Sadun told the Harvard Crimson she decided to leave her position because the task force’s authority didn’t require the implementation of their ideas to fight antisemitism. Garber had announced the full membership of the presidential task force on fighting antisemitism and combating anti-Muslim and anti-Arab hate in an email on Sunday after initially establishing them in January.
