I came to the office on Sunday for a meeting. I pulled into my parking spot but noticed that something was just not right. My sign! Someone took my sign! Who would take a “Rabbi Reserved” sign? Who knew that it was worth something that someone would actually want to steal it? Or was this an act of anti-Semitism? Was I going to find the sign thrown through a synagogue window? Was there going to be graffiti around the temple grounds? What was this all about?
Turns out, it was some kind of college prank since we’ve got the student on video as he went through the whole campus making sure that no one was here and then took off with the sign with someone else in their black SUV. Just as a side note, this is not an invitation for anyone to park in my spot.
But there has been a lot of concern over the past couple of weeks regarding anti-Semitic and anti-Israel activities here in Southern California…
Have you experienced similar situations? How else can we support the Jewish students at UCI? Do you know where my sign is?!? Let us know in the comments section below.
