RISD launches investigation into hate crime after Nazi symbol found in gender-neutral dorm bathroom
Rabbi Barry Dolinger of Providence’s Congregation Beth Sholom told the AP in November that he has been the target of anti-Semitic jeers that have become a “not irregular feature of life” since the US election. He said it has happened to him at least five times and to someone in his congregation at least once a month, always when they’re walking about because they don’t drive while observing the Sabbath.
One time, he said, he was told he “should have been burned in the ovens.”
Last May another congregation in a suburb nearby was vandalized with a swastika in what police deemed was a hate crime.
