Sukkah Destroyed By Vandals At Kansas State University

A sukkah was destroyed at Kansas State University in what officials believe was an act of anti-Semitic vandalism.

The sukkah had been erected on Wednesday by the university’s Department of Housing and Dining. But on Friday night, the structure had been completely demolished, with the pieces left on the ground around the car of the Housing and Dining employee who organized the sukkah’s construction.

Hillel co-advisor Gregory Newmark told the local newspaper The Mercury that he believed the act was meant to be anti-Semitic, especially because an informational poster explaining the holiday’s significance was attached to the sukkah.

“This was meant to be a place where everyone was welcome, and someone just ripped it down,” Newmark told the Mercury.

Anti-Semitic fliers were posted on K-State’s campus on Holocaust Remembrance Day in April.
