Jewish Population on Campus


17. York University

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Jewish civil rights group B’nai Brith Canada warned in May 2017 that York University suffers from a “systemic antisemitism” problem. They pointed to a litany of offensive incidents — from the “dozens” of swastikas found on campus that academic year, to the adoption of a BDS resolution by the school’s undergraduate and graduate student unions. While the university did fire one of its lab technicians for antisemitic social media posts in 2016, many contend that more should be done to support the Jewish community on campus. The university's student center, for instance, features a mural depicting a Palestinian rock-thrower, whose keffiyah is decorated with a map of a Palestinian state that includes the entirety of Israel. But York has refused to take the offensive painting down — even after a prominent donor pulled funds to the university in protest. (Photo credit: Wikipedia.)
