Supporting Israel On Campus

Hillel Ottawa is steadfastly committed to the support of Israel as a Jewish and Democratic State with secure and recognized borders and as a member of the family of free nations. In recent times the dialogue on Israel on university campuses in Ottawa has become increasingly heated. At Hillel Ottawa, we provide a safe space for students to express a wide spectrum of views regarding their relationships with Israel. We have a dedicated Israel Awareness Committee that is passionate about promoting positive dialogue and leads student advocacy efforts on campus.

The Israel Awareness Committee (IAC) prepares student leaders for engaging in dialogue on Israel, not only promoting Israel but by answering common criticisms. Students are given the opportunity to engage in many forms of Israel Advocacy in an effort to defend Israel on their campus.

Student leadership engages members of parliament to speak to students, faculty and community members to show their support for the state of Israel. These past few years students had the opportunity to meet and speak with Hon. John Baird, Hon. Peter Van Loan, MP Mark Adler, MP John McCallum, MP Peter Stoffer, MP Joe Volpe, MP Jeff Watson, and MP Marlene Jennings at our annual Israeli Wine and Canadian Cheese events.

The IAC builds coalitions on campus and on a national and international level. Only though continued partnerships can we build a successful campus culture of open dialogue.
