We begin in our studio with Simi Lampert and Hannah Dreyfus, editors of the Yeshiva University/Stern College BEACON, which was stripped of its funding for publishing a first-person account of pre-marital sex by an Orthodox Jewish student. As reported in the New York Times and throughout the global media, Simi refused to censor a story that resonates worldwide.
Censorship at a Jewish University? It became a global story as the NYTimes and major news services reported that the BEACON student website at New York's Yeshiva University was asked to remove a sexually suggestive story---and refused! We talk with Simi Lampert, the BEACON's co-founder about her unique run-in with undergraduate censorship.
