In a chilling reminder of how words proceed deeds, two Philadelphia universities – the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University – have reported being victims of anti-Semitic hate crimes.

University of Pennsylvania, which was recently embroiled in a controversy over its hosting of a Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Conference on February 3-5, reported that a swastika was etched onto an elevator door located in the same building as the university’s Hillel chapter. The investigation has been closed though, as the university’s Division of Public Safety was unable to identify a suspect.

Meanwhile, the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house at Temple University was recently spray-painted with the words “F— You Jews,” according to Temple News online. Security camera videos have revealed potential suspects in the vandalism of the Jewish fraternity house.
