NBC Bay Area, UC Hastings Law Student Targeted by Vandals in Possible Hate Crime:
A Bay Area law student was the target of vandals last week, and police are investigating it as a possible hate crime.
In what is being called an act of anti-Semitism at UC Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, someone burned the mezuzah that was hanging on the door frame outside of a dorm unit inside what is known as The Tower, police said.
A Jewish student who identified himself only as Jacob said he was the target. "It’s a lot more hurtful than they may have thought it was," he said. "After the numerous bomb threats we’ve received throughout the country, it wasn’t so surprising that it happened." ...
On Wednesday, the university sent out a letter to students, calling the incident a cowardly act of anti-Semitism and urging anyone with information to come forward.
