Swastikas carved into doors at student hall of residence in New Jersey

Several swastikas and other antisemitic symbols have been discovered carved into the doors of the Chestnut Hall students’ residence at Rowan University. None of the students living in the hall of residence were Jewish.

Rabbi Hersh Loschak, co-director of the Rohr Family Jewish Student Center (Chabad of Rowan University) issued a statement saying: “The people who committed these acts did so in order to spread hate on campus…We refuse to be intimidated or frightened, in fact we will use this incident as a motivation to increase the light and expand our programming for Jewish students on campus.”

Police are investigating the incident, and officials are asking anyone with information about the vandalism to contact the university’s public safety office on 856-256-4922.
