At a Monday meeting with Jewish leaders, Biden administration officials vowed to make a plan within two weeks to counter what they say is an alarming rise in antisemitism at US colleges and universities since Hamas’ deadly Oct. 7 attack started a war with Israel, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports.

The government officials, led by Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff and Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, told the Jewish leaders they would reconvene with them to lay out the proposal, sources in the off-the-record meeting say.
