Recent Anti-Semitic Act
Dear Temple of the High Country friends,
We want to acknowledge the recent anti-Semitic act which took place near the Temple last Wednesday night. A little before 7:30 in the evening, several drivers on King Street took the time to report an individual waving a Nazi flag in front of our temple.shortly after, two AEPi brothers riding a bus observed that flag draped over the Temple’s sign. They got off the bus, removed the flag, and reported the incident.
Law enforcement response was swift. Within minutes, an officer was on the scene to interview the students and retain the flag as evidence. Since then, we have received multiple phone calls from Boone police officers, including the Chief of Police, who expressed his concern and support, and pledged to increase police presence in our area for the immediate future..
The university has also been prompt in its support for us. By the time you read this, we will have had several conversations with key ASU leaders, including their Chief Diversity Officer, as well as concerned students who wished to express their support.
We want to reassure our congregants that the security measures we have had in place for the past year continue; and heightened security features are already being implemented for your personal safety whenever you or your loved ones visit our Temple in person.
We encourage all who are physically able to come together in solidarity to support each other and the students of Hillel and AEPi
As always, please don’t hesitate to call upon any of us — we are here to offer support in any meaningful way we are able during this difficult time.
