Letter to York U President Rhonda Lenton re addressing antisemitism and pro-terror messages

Dear President Lenton,

I am very pleased to see the very strong and principled stand you took in addressing antisemitism and pro-terror messages issued by three student groups. Please do follow up and ensure that your resolution of this hateful anti-Israel, anti-Jewish student behaviour is expunged from York U.

There must be a continuous response to Jew hatred which for too long has festered and grown, morphed and metastasized among students at several universities in Canada.

I pray we return soon to academia free of hatred and bigotry, but you may have to issue equally harsh statements towards faculty if any supported or encouraged these student bodies.

Again, thanks for your courage and leadership.

Yours truly,

Andria Spindel

Executive Director

Canadian Antisemitism Education Foundation
