(JTA) — A swastika, and racist and anti-Semitic graffiti, was found on the campus of a high school in a wealthy Connecticut suburb.
In an emailed letter to parents and students of Ridgefield High School, Principal Stacey Gross said such acts are a blow to the school’s striving to be inclusive.
“I know that you join with me in saying, ‘We will not allow our school to become a platform for hatred and intolerance of any group. Furthermore, we will not be bystanders to humiliation, and we will not be silent to the suffering of others,” she also wrote.
Ridgefield is a tony bedroom community near the city of Danbury and about an hour from New York City.
