Join our member, Aeden O’Connor as she leads our community in taking a stand against Anti-Semitism. Our student’s Jewish identities have been put to the fore by their peers who have sometimes stepped outside of the realm of political discourse into anti-Zionism that can be seen as bordering dangerously on the verge of anti-Semitism.
Holy Blossom is proud of Aeden’s work to build Jewish community on campus and beyond.

Across Canada, from universities to the public sphere, Anti-Semitism has been rearing its ugly head once again. There has been hateful graffiti, swastikas, nazi flags, inciteful murals and vile BDS campaigns. On April 29th University of Toronto will host virulent anti-semite Kenneth O’Keefe
Hosted by Aedan O’Connor, Vice President of Programming for Students Supporting Israel (SSI) at Ryerson University, Hasbara Fellowships Canada and a growing list of participating groups, join Canadians from all races, religions and walks of life for a public rally against Anti-Semitism. We ask that Universities and the city of Toronto condemn anti-semtism in all forms
In a loud and clear voice, we say NO to Anti-Semitism and that hatred against Jews will never be accepted.
This event organized as a response to a growing number of anti-Semitic instances across universities. Join us in supporting member Aedan O’Connor in standing up against the face of hateful bigotry. This event will feature speeches by prominent members in the Jewish community and student activists. This will take place May 1, 2-4 at City Hall
