Letter from AO and Partners Urges University of the Toronto Dean to Combating Anti-Semitism on Campus

In November 2019, the Alpha Omega Toronto Advocacy Committee, B'nai Brith Canada, and other concerned University of Toronto (U of T) professors prepared a letter for the U of T President, Professor Meric Gertler, expressing concern about the rise of Anti-Semitism on campus and suggestions of how to eliminate it.

Since that time, a coalition of Jewish community organizations, which includes the Alpha Omega Toronto Chapter, have come together to support a committee of U of T professors who are taking the lead in fighting Anti-Semitism on campus. They, along with B'nai Brith Canada, are petitioning the U of T administration to take the important first step against Anti-Semitism by adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of Anti-Semitism as University Policy. Click here to view the media release from B'nai Brith Canada and a new letter to President Gertler and the U of T Board of Governors.

Current University of Toronto professors, teaching assistants, clinical teachers (with any type of academic appointment), as well as past teaching staff including those with Emeritus status are being asked to sign the letter.  We are encouraging Alpha Omega members who are past and current deans, professors, teaching assistants, and staff from other academic institutions to sign the letter to stand in solidarity with our efforts to combat Anti-Semitism on the U o T campus and around the world.

Our collective efforts as a community will make a difference and together, we can help ensure a welcoming and safe environment for Jewish students at the U of T.
