“When the Concordia Student Union adopted a BDS resolution against Israel, we students on campus took it upon ourselves to advocate for and support the State of Israel. A negative resolution only made us stronger. This past October, we held the first ever Israel Education Month on campus, hosting a number of speakers and a memorial event for Rabin. The month culminated in a huge party celebrating the beauty of Israel.
Without the constant support of our community, none of this would have been possible. Thank you so much for providing the students of Montreal safe spaces, advice and encouragement during tough times on campus.”
With the support of Federation CJA, over 1,000 Jewish students at 7 CEGEP and universities in Montreal participated in on-campus activities related to Israel last year.
