#UofTScandal: Jewish Faculty at the University of Toronto in Support of the CAUT Censure

We write as Jewish faculty members at the University of Toronto to express our support for the Canadian Association of University Teachers’ (CAUT) unprecedented censure of our institution. We oppose the suppression of scholarship on Palestinian rights implied in the current crisis at the Faculty of Law, and the ways that the interests of the “Jewish community” have been invoked to achieve the breach of academic freedom at the heart of the current scandal. Not in our name.
