Two barns on the property of the yeshiva, which combines education and farming, were damaged and numerous swastikas were painted on the walls.
From 2016 to 2018, swastika vandalism rose 76 percent, according to the NYPD. There was a notable increase after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
“It brings us great pain to share with you, reprehensible student actions that have taken place over the course of the last few weeks.”
Microwaves were broken, as well. The full extent of the “criminal damage” is unclear, according to university police, which is still investigating.

A swastika was carved into his blackboard, students threw coins at him and one wrote, in German, “Six Million was just the beginning.”
“I opened the outer door and almost passed out,” she said. “It’s very upsetting. It makes me feel very vulnerable.”
“Swastikas are icons steeped in anti-Semitic hate, and have no place on our campus.”
“It was emotionally exhausting to be in school today,” one student said. “The hate in this school is bigger than us.”
“Praying they’re gone before all our children flood the street to celebrate Halloween tonight,” a CNBC producer tweeted of the swastikas.
