AVI/HRC Campus Media Fellow op-ed on the challenges Jewish students are facing on campus published in the Jerusalem Post

On June 27th, 2024, Toronto Metropolitan student Maxine Khalfon got published in the Jerusalem Post.

In her Jerusalem Post piece, “These are the challenges Jewish students are facing on campus - opinion,” Maxine comments on a recent piece in The Peak, Simon Fraser University's student publication, that has underscored challenges facing Jewish students due to biased narratives and antisemitic rhetoric.

“The language and tone of the article are antisemitic, spewing false narratives about the Jewish people, which directly affect students like myself, not only at Simon Fraser University but in schools around the world,” writes Maxine.

“As students, we must challenge falsehoods, confront bigotry, and strive for more empathetic and truthful discussions on such complex issues. Publications that reinforce negative stereotypes and downplay the historical suffering of the Jewish people contribute to a hostile environment on campus. These narratives make Jewish students feel unwelcome and threatened.”
