Town Hall on U of T - 23 March 2021



Tonight, we listened to what Jewish students, staff and faculty at the University of Toronto have been experiencing. Now, they are asking us to take action on their behalf.

At an unprecedented town hall event, supported by 34 communal organizations and synagogues from all the major religious denominations of Judaism, a panel of students and professors called on the entire Jewish community to contact the University's administration and demand the following two actions:
  • 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 [email protected]
Enough is enough. It is time for our entire community to come together as one united voice and demand better from one of our country’s largest and most prestigious institutions of higher learning.
Our collective, unified voice must be heard loudly and clearly – inaction on antisemitism is unacceptable.
