I am so excited for the Hanukah relaunch of the hillelintl #ownyourstar campaign ✡️ Now more than ever it is important for us to come together and show pride in our Jewish identity. For me, owning my star means standing firmly in my Jewish values and working to uplift my community. What’s your #ownyourstar story? Share it on your socials throughout Hanukah! חַג חֲנוּכָּה שַׂמֵחַ
I am a Jew. Being Jewish has been a huge part of my life, from private Jewish schools to spending the High Holidays with my family to shabbat every week. I am so proud of my Jewish identity and #ownyourstar and thank you hillelintl for creating the hashtag. Despite any hardships and all the silly things life throws at me, I know I always have the support of my Jewish community, and that feeling of safety and love is something I wouldn`t trade for anything.
My chai (means life in hebrew) necklace is from my older sister when she went to Israel this summer.
My star of David was my late grandmother`s and every day when I wear it I think of her.
Every piece of Jewish culture has a piece of my heart, and I love being Jewish. Even if it means being persecuted.
Let’s Stop Hate with Jewish Pride
For 2,000 years, the Star of David has been a proud symbol of Jewish heritage. But it has also been used to terrorize the Jewish community and spread hate.
And antisemitism is rising again. Since October 7, more than half of Jewish college students feel less safe on campus, and 1 in 3 students say they need to hide their Jewish identity. And we are recording the highest levels of antisemitism on campus…ever. That’s not okay.
Hillel is calling on our community to stand up to rising antisemitism right here, right now: It’s time to #OwnYourStar this Hanukkah and let our stars and Jewish pride shine even brighter.
