(JNS.org) A Jewish fraternity house at Emory University in Atlanta was targeted with anti-Semitic graffiti on the day after Yom Kippur, as swastikas were found spray-painted on Alpha Epsilon Pi’s walls Sunday morning.

“On behalf of our community, I denounce this abhorrent act,” the university’s president, Jim Wagner, said in a statement.

“It is an offense against a Jewish fraternity and the Jewish members of our community, and it is a repugnant, flagrant emblem of anti-Semitism. It is also an offense against the entire university,” Wagner added.
