For the next eight days and eight nights, let’s show the world that antisemitism has no place to hide when our stars shine EVEN brighter this Hanukkah! 

Share a photo or video on Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, or Facebook and use the hashtag #OwnYourStar to showcase YOUR Jewish pride—whether that’s by displaying a Star of David on your necklace, your favorite menorah, spinning dreidels, sizzling latkes, or sharing a memorable Jewish experience.

We have been waiting 97 days for the Israeli hostages to be released.  Light a second pair of Shabbat candles for those that can’t. 
Shabbat Shalom BRING THEM HOME!  #bringhershhome #bringthemhomenow #ownyourstar #jewishlife #shabbatshalom #hillelinternational

Many mountain tops in the Portugal have a cross just like this. It makes me think how much the Inquisition exploited the Alhambra decree that force converted all the Jewish to Catholicism (or exile, or torture, & worse) for the political and economic gains of an ever increasing evil and colonial empire established by that wicked Trastamara family. However, today, that family no longer exists and the Judaism is once again returning to Iberia. Not only is it returning because descendants of former refugees are returning, many Iberians are recognizing their Jewish ancestry and Jewish DNA they are proud of. Here I am proudly holding my book of the Tehillim as the proud Iberian Sephardic Jewish person I am. Proud happy friendly loving Iberian Sephardic forever!❤

Who else is tired of this sectarian nonsense spreading in Judaism focusing on these trifling petty pieces of quote on quote "ethnic" divisions within the Judaism that divide us? I mean like, I can go into more detail, but basically, there's too much empty tribalism going around to compare one identity to another in an uneducated negative light. And yet, these people pushing divisions have no clue of who the great sages of Iberia are or what the Judaism is as taught by our great sages. Sephardic Judaism (Sephardicism) is about focusing on primary Rabbinic texts from Iberia and accross the Mediterranean to the Middle East. It is about uniting the shared ideas within the Judaism that we all love and value. If anyone is promoting sectarian nonsense and flagging their "tribe" as their identifier, then they clearly aren't respecting the great Sages and our unique meditative teachings that bring us closer to Hashem & eachother through the love and the wisdom and the understanding.❤✡

My favorite way to celebrate my Jewish heritage is with great food! Stopped by the famous4thstdelicatessen here in Philly for a pastrami sandwich and a Cel-Ray soda. Now more than ever it’s important to be proud of our Jewish roots which is why I’m joining hillelintl to encourage people to stand up to hate and #OwnYourStar

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.
