I Experienced Antisemitism in College; I Won't be Silenced Again

Updated: Jul 11, 2023

Until a few months ago, I could have shared how lucky I was to have never experienced antisemitism. That’s no longer true. As a first-year Jewish student at the University of Western Ontario, I have felt safe and accepted in my community. However, a recent firsthand experience of antisemitism has left me fearful.

During one of my classes, we had a discussion period, which led to an uncomfortable conversation regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Prior to our discussion, the lesson focused on the struggles of indigenous people, who have and continue to face horrific colonial oppression in Canada.
