SWASTIKAS Painted on Jewish Fraternity House at Vanderbilt (VIDEO)
Vandals spray-painted two Swastikas on a Jewish fraternity house at Vanderbilt this past weekend.
Police are investigating the crime.
Shalom Life reported:
A Jewish fraternity house at the Vanderbilt University in Nashville has become the victim of a hate crime. Two swastikas were spray-painted in the elevator of the Alpha Epsilon Pi house early Saturday morning. It was discovered following a party that had taken place on the property.
Susan Wente, the university Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, notified students via email after the vandalism was discovered.
The Vanderbilt University Police Department is also investigating the incident as a hate crime.
“We understand the anguish and pain that this hateful symbol causes,” said Wente, “and we stand together to condemn any effort to intimidate or send an unwelcoming message to Jewish members of the Vanderbilt community.”
“While the swastikas were spray-painted at the AEPi house, this inexcusable incident impacts every Jew on campus, and has no place at Vanderbilt,” said Arid Dubin, the executive director of the Vanderbilt Hillel, in the report.

Student groups are rallying around the Jewish fraternity after the anti-Semitic ew banners have been cropping up this week outside Vanderbilt University’s fraternity and sorority houses.
