To our WSU community:
We are shocked and horrified by the antisemitic graffiti and damage to the Holocaust memorial at Temple Beth Shalom in Spokane on Monday. While this desecration did not take place on our Spokane campus, we join our Jewish friends and neighbors as well as the greater community in denouncing these acts in the strongest terms possible. That this hate crime occurred just two weeks after International Holocaust Remembrance Day intensifies the depth of our anger.
As a Cougar Community, we do not tolerate hate or hate crimes. Acts and expressions of antisemitism undermine the educational process and directly contradict our core values. We want to show our support for our Jewish community, as they should not be afraid to be who they are. We join so many others in our community in standing against this type of hate and divisiveness. We remain hopeful that those responsible for this are held fully accountable for their intolerable acts.
A number of University-provided counseling services are available to those who may need them, including the Employee Assistance Program (employees statewide) and campus-specific services available to students: Pullman, Everett, Spokane, Tri‑Cities, and Vancouver.
