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 about 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.
Israel on campus (IOC) 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 to defend Israel on their campus.
The IOC 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.
