Mackenzie Forrest, a 23-year-old graduate student, filed the lawsuit against the Ivy League institution claiming she faced discrimination because she’s an Orthodox Jew and Sabbath observer. Forrest said protests calling for the genocide of Jews and antisemitic manifestos in the School of Social Work where she studied created a “virulently hostile” environment after the Hamas attack against the Jewish state.
