Patience — and plausible deniability — are running thin during Montclair High School’s Jewish heritage month.
It had to be a mistake. Or perhaps some kind of prank? The email from Montclair High School stunned parents in the famously liberal New Jersey enclave Monday afternoon: Its pick to honor for Jewish American Heritage Month was the late ultra-nationalist radical Rabbi Meir Kahane.
Police officials said they did not consider the statement to “exterminate the Jews” as a credible threat.
They also sang a song played during the rise of Adolf Hitler to support the Nazi troops.
In response, students of the school created chalk street art to spread messages of love and acceptance.
The principal stated that children cannot be forced to learn the school’s Holocaust curriculum since “Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened.”
Local police are conducting an investigation, but don’t have much evidence to go on, law enforcement said.
(JTA)– The Jewish Student Union sign at a Boston-area high school was vandalized with a swastika.
The posters were removed shortly after they were discovered at the Southern California school.
A “swastika renaissance” is underway, says the head of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.
