Alums for Campus Fairness at Dartmouth College (ACF-Dartmouth) is outraged and appalled by the recent antisemitic incident at Dartmouth College, in which a large menorah installed on the Dartmouth Green was vandalized  late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. ACF will not stand by as Jewish spaces at our alma mater are targeted.

According to The Dartmouth, “an unidentified perpetrator or group of perpetrators shot holes through seven of the nine lights in what campus groups and the College condemned as an anti-Semitic act of violence.”

ACF calls on the Administration and Hanover Police to take necessary and appropriate action moving forward that ensures the safety of the campus Jewish community.

We ask that our supporters and supporters of the Dartmouth Jewish community reach out to Dartmouth Chabad and Dartmouth Hillel to show support for Jewish students and allies.
