AVI/HRC Campus Media Fellow op-ed on Jewish student's dilemma on campus published in the Jerusalem Post


On July 1, 2024, Toronto Metropolitan University student Madison Rosenberg was published in The Jerusalem Post for her piece expressing her frustration at having to choose between being a proud Jewish student and her safety on campus


“Personally, as a Jewish student at TMU, I have asked myself, 'Do I have to choose between my Judaism and my safety?' and 'Will advocating for myself and my community put me in danger on campus?' These are questions no person should have to ask themselves, especially when trying to get an education, like everyone else,” writes Madison. 


“While many schools, including mine, watch idly as students get accosted, harassed and mentally abused on campus, the antisemitism grows. When school administration and staff let injustices occur without consequences, this sends a clear message: 'We do not care about our Jewish students’ safety' and 'We are okay with what is happening on our property.' The school may not agree with those statements, but those are the messages sent out by their actions or lack thereof.”
