Celebrating Jewish Heritage Month - A Message from the President

May is Jewish Heritage Month in Canada, a time to celebrate Jewish culture, heritage, history, and the many contributions that Jewish Canadians have made to our country.

The disturbing rise in antisemitism across the globe means it is more important than ever to celebrate diversity, and it highlights our shared responsibility to take action and denounce all forms of hate and discrimination on our campus and in our communities.

I encourage you to take some time this month to explore the resources on this page to learn more about Jewish culture and history. Educating ourselves on the historical and present issues facing Jewish Canadians will help us better understand how we can create and sustain an inclusive culture on our own campus.
