Cardozo Law School is secular, but as a result of its heritage many of its students are Jewish.

I can't say for sure, but I would wager that a school like Fordham has even more Jews than Cardozo. Unless you can back it up with a real statistic, e.g. >40% are Jewish (this is law school after all), I don't think this sentence should remain. Instead, maybe you can write that Cardozo gives off for all the Jewish holidays.

I was only using Fordham as an example. The sentence seems like a warning of some sort. There are enough Jews in any law school that warnings like this could probably be added to every profile.
Of course, I might be wrong and there really are significantly more Jews in Cardozo than in other NY law schools. In that case, I apologize for bringing it up.

Unfortunately, enrollment numbers for Jews are not made public by the law school (I don't think any law school keeps track of this anyway), so statements like this (that are not backed up by numbers or that rely on hearsay) will either be qualified or stripped completely. Thanks for bringing it up!
