Oregon Hillel Vandalized

Legitimate criticism of Israel or anti-Semitism?

Oregon Hillel vandalized

From the Eugene Oregon Hillel Foundation:

We apologize for the graphic content, but today we were shocked and saddened to return to our building in Eugene to find one of our welcome signs in our parking lot covered with hate filled graffiti. We greatly appreciate the immediate support of President Schill, the Dean of Students Office and the Office of Equity and Inclusion. All have voiced their concern and support for our community and offered their resources. We have removed the sign and will work to clean it off – there is no other damage or graffiti to any other parts of the building. We have also communicated with Chabad & Akiva on Campus to make sure that they are aware and have offered to help keep an eye on all of our properties throughout the summer.

Below is a statement from Kevin Marbury, University of Oregon Vice President – Division of Student Life – we are very grateful for the quick response and support that the the university has shown to our Hillel and Jewish community on campus. Despite hate we celebrate light by lighting the Shabbat candles with our community around the world -

"Jewish student community members,

We have been made aware of anti-Sematic graffiti that recently appeared outside the The Oregon Hillel Foundation. Anti-Semitism and other forms of hate have no place at the University of Oregon. We condemn this as an unacceptable violation our university values. The UO Police Department has taken the initial report and is working with Eugene PD to further investigate. To the extent we are able, we will share additional information as it becomes available.

If you need support or any assistance stemming from this incident, please contact the Dean of Students office 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday at 541-346-3216, or if you need immediate support, you can contact the UO Counseling Center’s after-hour support and crisis line: 541-346-3227."

Division of Student Life
