Out of Sync is just around the corner which means it’s time to start getting pumped for the show! We have created a Spotify playlist with all the classic songs that will make you want to get up and dance and lip sync (or sing) your heart out!

Here are a few of our favourite songs on the playlist:

Livin’ On A Prayer- Bon Jovi

If you have ever gone to overnight camp, or a bar/bat mitzvah, then you know how wild people get when this song comes on. Everyone knows all the words, and you can’t help but grab all your friends and sing at the top of your lungs.

Bohemian Rhapsody- Queen

We have all seen the epic Wayne’s World car scene with Wayne and Garth belting out Queens Bohemian Rhapsody. If you haven’t seen it, we highly recommend you do! This is the perfect song to jam out to in your car alone or with friends. Kudos to you if you know all the words to the song!

Mamma Mia- ABBA

Any song by ABBA is a hit, but by far the most popular one has to be Mamma Mia. It’s a great feel good song to get up and dance to. Unleash your inner Donna and the Dynamos, find the craziest disco outfit you have, and you are set for a great performance.

Wannabe- Spice Girls

While there are many great 90s songs to choose from, Wannabe by the Spice Girls made it to the top of our list. Not only is it an incredibly catchy song, the Spice Girls are one of the greatest girl bands of all time. Find your Mel B, Mel C, Posh, Baby, and Ginger Spice and you’re ready for an epic lip sync battle.

Don’t Go Breaking My Heart- Elton John

Lastly, we all need that perfect duet song, and Don’t Go Breaking My Heart is a classic. It’s fun, upbeat and has some catchy harmonies that will be stuck in your head all night long!

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.”
