Many universities in North America have evolved into centers of indoctrination and intolerance, with a growing focus on targeting Jews and the Jewish state. In his new book, Professor Schwartz proposes a set of legal reforms aimed at addressing the persistent and deteriorating situation.

Canadian universities have regrettably become breeding grounds for Anti-Semitism, often concealed within anti-Zionist groups. This hostile environment has left Jewish and pro-Israel staff and students feeling threatened, harassed, and silenced. The issue persists and worsens with each conflict escalation in Israel, leading to increased isolation and threats against Jewish students. Waiting for the problem to resolve itself is not an option. We must act now to ensure that future generations of Jewish children can attend Canadian universities and feel safe, regardless of their faith, identity, or political views. Law Professor Bryan Schwartz, drawing from his extensive experience at Univ of Manitoba for 40 years, examines why higher education in Canada has transformed into centers for indoctrination and intolerance, with a specific focus on the increasing targeting of Jews and the Jewish state.
