AVI/HRC Campus Media Fellow op-ed on her experience navigating discrimination as a Jewish student on campus published in the Toronto Sun

On May 31st, AVI/HRC Campus Media Fellow Maxine Khalfon was published in The Sun. Her piece, “Navigating falsehood and discrimination as a Jewish student at Toronto Metropolitan University,” details her experiences feeling unwelcome on campus. 

“As I reflect on my journey at Toronto Metropolitan University, I am struck by the contrast between the anticipation and excitement I felt accepting my offer to this school and the reality I had coming for me being a Jewish student on campus,” she writes.

“The recent encampments on school grounds serve as a reminder of the overwhelming anti-Semitism that the Jewish community feels every day attending this school. The reluctance of the university to address and condemn hate directed at students only amplifies the feeling of isolation and fear.”
