Many of you are aware of the recent vandalism at the Blacksburg Jewish Community Center where the center’s sign was defaced with racist and anti-Semitic symbols which have been identified as neo-Nazi in nature. In response, the center will have an interfaith service to be held on Thursday March 23rd from 7:30-8:30 pm at the center. Racism and antisemitism impacts our entire community and it is important we come together of different faiths, races and backgrounds to support each other. We must continue the advocacy of justice, peace and respect for all.
