The Consulate applauds UTSA - The University of Texas at San Antonio's Student Government Association for passing a resolution that both condemns anti-Semitism and adopts the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism.

As we are witnessing a concerning increase in anti-Semitic incidents all over the globe, we are pleased to see the University taking this major step forward in the fight against hate.

We are excited to announce that UTSA's Student Government Association has unanimously passed a resolution that both condemns antisemitism and adopts the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism. We know that antisemitism has taken on pernicious new forms in recent years, and we believe this definition is a first step in addressing this issue. As always, Hillel San Antonio is proactive in standing up for our students, building bridges, and fostering a positive campus climate.

Similar resolutions at other college campuses are often difficult to pass and require a huge amount of time and resources. At UTSA, it took four passionate Hillel students - Maria Viramontes, Bennett Rosin, James Leonard, and Octavio Viramontes. Hillel is so proud of them, and so honored to partner with a University where it's truly great to be Jewish.
