In New York, six women have accused billionaire donor Michael Steinhardt of carrying out sexual harassment over the course of decades. In interviews with ProPublica and The New York Times, the women say Steinhardt regularly propositions sex and threesomes, while making unwelcome comments about women’s bodies. Steinhardt has denied many of the allegations. Steinhardt co-founded Birthright Israel and has donated about $25 million to the nonprofit. The group provides free trips to Israel to young Jewish Americans, promoting Israeli government policies while avoiding discussion of Israel’s West Bank settlements and its occupation of Palestinian lands.
