On March 4, 2005 The Daily Orange reported, "accepting differences and celebrating diversity is the idea behind a joint program by Syracuse University's Hillel and Muslim Student Association starting next week. The program, 'Search for Understanding,' will include events ranging from discussions to concerts starting next week and will last through the remainder of the spring semester. University Union president and Hillel member Dennis Jacobs said he believes deeply in this collaboration. 'I think it is fantastic to have Hillel and MSA join together to put on such events,' Jacobs said. 'There is such a stigma right now, not only here, but nationally, about these certain groups not working together.'"
