Need a rabbi?

I never understood why the Haifa Technion, Israel’s technical university, needed a full time paid rabbi. Finally, I know:

The Technion’s rabbi has published a ban, forbidding Jewish students from entering the student’s union club house and eating there, as a Christmas tree had been put up in the building. This pagan symbol that allows a Christian religious presence in the midst of the Technion, is unacceptable, says the rabbi.

We do not need rabbis, priests or imams in our universities. Students who need spiritual guidance can go to their own  synagogue/ church/ mosque/ psychiatrist/ or voodoo practitioner.
