Anti-Semitic graffiti found on Newton North High School's campus
The graffiti comes in the wake of a basketball game between the largely Jewish Newton North High School and Catholic Memorial High School earlier this month.
Three cases of anti-Semitic graffiti have been found at Newton North High School and are currently under investigation, WCVB reported.
The graffiti comes in the wake of a basketball game between the largely Jewish Newton North High School and Catholic Memorial High School earlier this month when fans from Catholic Memorial shouted anti-Semitic chants.
One such chant was, “You killed Jesus.”
Students at the game were required to apologize individually for their chants and were also forbidden from attending their team’s championship game at TD Garden, NECN reported.
Newton has struggled with instances of racism and anti-Semitism on its campus in recent years.
“In December 2015, anti-Semitic graffiti was discovered on a bathroom wall at Newton North. In February of this year, four racist questions were submitted via an anonymous online site as the Black Leadership Advisory Club was preparing for Black Culture Day,” NECN reported.
Police are currently investigating the most recent instance of anti-Semitic graffiti.
