Indiana U. Official Accused of Anti-Semitic Vandalism

December 16, 2010

Colleges and universities periodically experience anti-Semitic vandalism at Hillel facilities or other places identifiable as Jewish, but it's the rare incident that is traced to a university administrator. But on Wednesday authorities announced that an arrest warrant had been issued for Mark Zacharias, scholarship coordinator of the honors college at Indiana University at Bloomington, on charges that he used a rock to break the glass of an information board in the building housing Jewish studies at the university, WRTV News reported. Indiana University has seen several other incidents of anti-Semitic vandalism in the last week, but authorities have not linked Zacharias -- who has not commented -- to those events.
