Yeshiva Student Admits to Writing Antisemitic Graffiti

By: JTA

A Long Island yeshiva student was charged with repeatedly scrawling antisemitic graffiti inside a commuter train station.

Jonathan Schuster, 18, a senior at Priority-1: Torah Academy of Lawrence-Cedarhurst, in Cedarhurst, N.Y.,was charged with the crimes on Thursday

He admitted to using black marker to write anti-Semitic statements, often including expletives, on eight occasions since December 2012, police told Newsday.

The boy, who lives in Far Rockaway, Queens, has no previous criminal record. The vandalism, at the Cedarhurst Long Island Railroad Station, mostly occurred at night, with the graffiti consisting of obscenities directed at Orthodox Jews scrawled on train platform billboards or station signs. On one occasion, a swastika was etched into the wall of a platform shelter.

Priority-1: Torah Academy of Lawrence-Cedarhurst bills itself as “the pioneering leader in alternative yeshiva high schooling to service capable and gifted young men whose needs are not being met by the traditional yeshiva system.”

The school “has led countless at-risk teenage boys to abandon self-destructive behavior and become true bnei Torah and observant Jews,” the yeshiva’s website says.

  1. The school “has led countless at-risk teenage boys to abandon self-destructive behavior and become true bnei Torah and observant Jews,” the yeshiva’s website says. FAIL.

  2. HE IS A SELF HATING JEW!

  3. I would assume this student has it in for the school. A bad teacher perhaps.

  4. Gabrielle Wolf-Stahl says:

    Actually, he sounds like he needs mental health services and maybe his whole family needs therapy time…

  5. Gabrielle Wolf-Stahl says:

    (and actually I would have them examine how the school actually is handling kids with issues to make sure there isn't a problem there as well…)

  6. This boy needs help. If he has not yet seen a qualified therapist, that should be done as quickly as possible.
