Anti-Semitic vandalism on the rise on campus
by Alex Katz – SFPA Member on January 18, 2011
On a Monday during Hanukkah, someone took eight Hebrew texts down from the shelves of Indiana University’s Wells Library, put the books in eight different bathrooms, threw them in toilets and urinated on them.
The next day, two rocks were thrown into Jewish buildings on Indiana’s campus.
The same week, a large menorah at the University of Florida was uprooted and vandalized — the night after people heckled the Hillel center, yelling, “Fuck the Jews.”
