Toronto community escorts Jewish kids after they receive death threats from fellow schoolmates

Hundreds of people arrived at a Toronto neighborhood on Friday morning to show their support to a family whose children were victims of antisemitism on their way to school, according to Canadian media reports.

According to the reports, Adi Cohen - an Israeli mother of four who lives in Toronto - has reported to local authorities that her two older kids were victims of ongoing antisemitic harassment. On November 2023 Cohen’s son, 13, was surrounded by three other kids at school who were being physical with him, “pushing and shoving him, and saying they want to ‘do to him what Hamas did to Israel,” The Canadian Jewish News (CJN) cited Cohen.

So glad the citizens of Toronto responded the way they did. Maybe those bullies learned something, we can hope.

I was just about to write the same thing. Those poor children.

At the same time, I'm glad that so members of the community, including local politicians, came together to show their support.

It's happening here in the US too. These kids are being led. They're being led online and on college campuses. When kids so young start it, it's engrained in our educational system too.

Agreed with all comments above.  But people getting pushed and shoved around in school and demeaned is nothing new or something that just happens more horrifically to a certain group of kids.  

There have always been bullies and victims.  The geeky kids, the unpopular kids, the group home kids.  The kids with physical disabilities got it the worst where I was.  The girls who colored their hair in different colors in a way that suited them.  I remember getting personally involved physically in defense of a mentally retarded student in 8th grade when he was getting slapped around in a circle by about 4 kids.  I got detention for it, but the 4 kids didn't.  I to this day cannot understand what compelled a group of teens to do that.  There were a lot of fights in public school where I was.  And none of them were for any good reason.  They all were unjust.

People and kids get kicked around and hurt everyday for no good reason at all.  Most of them just don't make the news or garner support groups.
