Founded in January 2020 by UF Hillel, Spread Cream Cheese Not Hate® is a campaign to combat antisemitism and all forms of hate at the University of Florida and in our communities.
BAGEL DAY VOLUNTEERS
From prepping bagels and cream cheese, to organizing materials, and handing out bagels, student volunteers are critical to sharing our message. They are the ones who make Bagel Day possible! Volunteers are needed throughout the day on Tuesday, Jan. 18th - sign up now and we'll contact you about your availability. As an official campaign representative, you'll receive a FREE Spread Cream Cheese Not Hate® tshirt!
TAKE THE PLEDGE
All students, faculty, alumni, families and community members are invited to sign the pledge, thereby committing to combat antisemitism and all forms of hate at UF and in our communities. It doesn't matter if you are Jewish, like bagels, or have even visited Gainesville, you can be part of this work by signing the Spread Cream Cheese Not Hate® pledge.
Anyone who signs the pledge on National Bagel Day can pick up a free bagel and cream cheese on campus on Tuesday, January 18th. Stay tuned for more details!
Not on campus? Schmear and cheer us on from home! Grab a bagel and sign the pledge online below.
SHARE YOUR STORY
Sharing personal stories is a critical piece of our efforts to educate our communities about the increasing prevalence of antisemitism and hate. Many students have experienced or witnessed incidents of antisemitism or hate, and we want to use the power of your voices to raise awareness and urge others to take action through UF Hillel's Spread Cream Cheese Not Hate ® campaign.
Please submit a brief summary of your story below by Thursday, January 13. All responses can be submitted and shared anonymously.
