6 Profiles You Should Definitely Schwipe Right On

    1. The Good Jewish Boy/Girl
      Make your mom proud and schwipe right on the good Jewish girl or boy. The one with a Jewish mom who has the most delicious recipes, will do Shabbat dinner every week with you, and worry and nudge you constantly out of the goodness of her heart.
    2. The Studious Boy/Girl
      It wasn’t cool to be a nerd growing up. But once you hit university, you understand the value of a smart, studious partner. It’s so much more fun to be challenged by someone who is capable of deep conversations, has opinions on what’s important and can actually articulate them.
    3. The Serious Boy/Girl
      Don’t let age and maturity be in your way. We know “playing the game” is fun in the beginning, but once the relationship solidifies, you’ll be happier with someone who actually wants to talk seriously about the future. We suggest you schwipe right on the Serious Boy/Girl.
    4. The Zionist Boy/Girl
      Have you been on Birthright yet? If you have been to Israel, we are certain that you love it there and that you just can’t wait to go back. If you schwipe right on the Zionist Boy/Girl,  you won’t only have your love for Israel in common but you may also end up traveling to the land of milk and honey sooner than you think.
    5. The Jokester
      Everyone loves a good laugh. Schwipe right on the Jokester and you can expect those cheek muscles to hurt from all of that smiling. Fun fact: did you know that laughing can help you lose weight and reduce your risk for depression.
    6. Hillel
      Last, but surely not least, schwipe right on Hillel… literally. Next time you come to one of our events, bring your student ID card and schwipe right. Why? Because schwiping your student ID means that you don’t have to fill out sign-in sheets anymore, standing between you and your bagel and cream cheese. All you need to do to save time is whip out your student ID and schwipe!

Hillel Ontario Welcomes University of Toronto’s Anti-Semitism Working Group

Hillel Ontario Welcomes University of Toronto’s Anti-Semitism Working Group

Hillel Ontario welcomes University of Toronto’s recent launch of a new Anti-Semitism Working Group. The Working Group will review programming, activities, processes, and practices in place at the University of Toronto’s three campuses and develop recommendations to support the University’s response to antisemitism.

“The establishment of a working group focused on antisemitism is a much-needed measure for the University of Toronto,” said Rob Nagus, Senior Director, Hillel UofT. “Too often, Jewish students who have faced antisemitism on campus have felt that their serious concerns around anti-Jewish hate were dismissed. Given the positive impact of recent anti-racism initiatives on the campus community, it is incumbent on our institutions to also address the unique challenges inherent to combating antisemitism.”

“Across the nine campuses we serve, Hillel Ontario is committed to working with all university administrations to champion the voices of Jewish students,” said Marc Newburgh, CEO, Hillel Ontario. “We look forward to supporting the work of the University of Toronto by ensuring these voices are heard and acknowledged. Doing so will help the Working Group better understand how contemporary antisemitism manifests on campus.”
