One visiting Technion University today will see the green, white and red colors synonymous with Xmas to the displeasure of religious students. They report an Xmas tree it is visible from the cafeteria, and bothersome to many.
When student union officials were addressed on the matter, they explain it is “legitimate” and next week, a Chanukah menorah will be lit each day of the holiday.
Technion officials respond, explaining when the university opened its doors it was stated then its doors are open to all, regardless of race, creed or color. The student union backs the tree, stating they are open-minded towards all religions.
