Chabad rally against swastika leaflets at Virginia Tech

The Chabad Librescu Jewish Student Center at Virginia Tech University has scheduled a solidarity rally for Monday afternoon at the Graduate Life Center Plaza in response to the discovery of more than 100 leaflets with hand-drawn swastikas scattered over the front yard of the center, just opposite the university campus, on Saturday afternoon.

Rabbi Zvi Yaakov Zweibel, Co-Director of the center said, "This disgusting act of hate occurred just one day after we announced that Chabad was hosting renowned holocaust survivor Rabbi Nissen Mangel, for a lecture at Virginia Tech in April." He noted, "This incident is all the more surprising seeing as it is the first such act since Chabad on Campus at Virginia Tech was opened more than eight years ago."
