THE WAVE OF HATE FOR JEWS GROWS BY THE HOUR, IN USA!

Carnegie Mellon University sophomore Adira Rosen recently wrote a paper on a Yiddish Play called God of Vengeance for a drama class. For her research, she visited CMU’s Hunt Library on Nov. 29 to check out The Passing Game, a book that explores how Judaism and the LGBTQ community intersect in theater.

When she opened the book up to Page 7, she was shocked to see the words “Jews have no business at CMU!” scribbled in the margin and a large black swastika drawn in the middle of the page. Next to the text, apparently in different handwriting, reads “you are right” with a smiley face.

Rosen, who is Jewish, was especially dismayed at the vandalism because of its proximity to the Tree of Life mass shooting, which occurred about a month before. The synagogue is less than two miles from the Hunt Library.
