CFHU and Hillel Toronto Combats IAW with Israeli Music, Arts and Fashion

Bookmark and Share

This month, on campuses across the country, Jewish students and Israel supporters will be faced with Israeli Apartheid Week. IAW, also known as anti-Israel week occurs on campuses throughout North America and Europe. During this week attempts are made by IAW organizers to spread misleading information through lectures, handouts and demonstrations while using intimidating tactics to delegitimize Israel’s existence.

In response to this week, the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University is sponsoring an event being organized by Hillel Toronto called Lyla Lavan (White Night). This evening will bring Israeli music, arts and fashion to the forefront in a celebration of Israeli culture. The event begins at 4:00 PM at the Gladstone Hotel with an animation and graphics presentation by Israeli artists. The party will then continue at On the Rox nightclub where event attendees will have the opportunity to taste Israeli wines and appetizers, view photo exhibits presented by Birthright students and IsraAid, watch a fashion show featuring Israeli designers and see performances by Israeli rock band Eatliz, Israeli electro group Automatic Toys and DJs Zed’s Dead, DJ Golan and DJ Pele Pele.

This event is sure to be a lot of fun and is a great way to show your support for Israel during IAW. To purchase tickets for this event, please click here.  We look forward to seeing you at this awesome event!
