Toronto, ON – Today, in partnership with the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) Canadian Hillels released the second annual Going Somewhere? The Canadian Guide to Jewish Campus Life.
Inspired by the Maclean’s annual university guide, Going Somewhere? provides students with information about Jewish life on campuses across Canada as well as tips on how Jewish students can make the most of their first-year experience.
This year’s Going Somewhere? includes profiles of more than 20 Canadian campuses, important information about access to kosher food, housing options, Jewish studies programs, and social and pro-Israel advocacy opportunities.
Marc Newburgh, CEO of Hillel Ontario – the largest Hillel affiliate in Canada and around the world – issued the following statement:
“We are proud to publish the second edition of the Canadian guide to Jewish life on campus. The university years are important in shaping one’s career, passions and identity. For Jewish students, campus is a unique place to connect with community and Jewish causes. Our hope is that this guide will enable every student to find their home on campus through Hillel.”
Judy Zelikovitz, Vice President of University and Local Partner Services at CIJA, added:
“Now more than ever, we must empower students to stand up for Jewish values and causes on campus. Along with a range of information on Jewish campus life, the Guide offers tips and insights on how students can become active in Jewish advocacy. CIJA is pleased to have again contributed to this valuable publication, in concert with our Hillel partners across Canada.”
