An executive committee member of Princeton's undergraduate student government (USG), Adam Hoffman led the fight against a BDS referendum last spring. Thanks to Hoffman’s efforts, 56% of voters chose not to support the measure, voting “no” or abstaining. Last fall, Hoffman proposed a referendum for the USG to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism. A modified version of the IHRA definition was passed as a “Resolution to Condemn and Combat Antisemitism.” Hoffman united the Jewish community at Princeton, the majority of whom endorsed the IHRA definition.
