Toronto Jewish Community Together Against Antisemitism at U of T

It was a landmark web meeting with over 30 sponsors under the organizational leadership of B’nai Brith Canada, that met on March 25th to hear from Jewish professors and students about the decades old antisemitism at Canada’s most prestigious university. Examples of personal and collective Jewish experiences were presented and shocked many listeners. But it should not be shocking as stories about antisemitism and Israel bashing have emanated from U of T for too long and the past and current administrations have done little to nothing to curb this.

The Jewish community must act. NO instance of Jew hatred is acceptable!

Here are two things YOU can do:

Write the President, Dr. Meric Gertler and cc the Chair of The Working Group on Antisemitism, Dr. Arthur Ripstein, and demand the following:

  • That the University begin enforcing its own by-laws and policies to protect Jewish students on campus;

  • That the University adopt the IHRA Definition of Antisemitism.

The office of university president Meric Gertler can be reached by phone at 416-978-4163 or by email at president@utoronto.ca

The Working Group on Antisemitism can be reached by email at anti.semitism.working.group@utoronto.ca

Jews and Non-Jews Need Recognize the Dangers of Antisemitism


In this essay by David Hunt, first published in unitedwithisrael.org and then on israelseen.com, the author describes the current situation as War, and enjoins us to do more than talk, write letters, and hold our head in our hands. Read this provocative and insightful call to act.
