Dozens of Jewish groups called on Congress this week to complete ‎work on two bipartisan bills aimed at targeting anti-Semitism in the United ‎States and abroad.‎...

...Also on Thursday, the New York City Police launched a hate-‎crime investigation after swastikas and an anti-Semitic slur were ‎found scrawled on the office walls of a Jewish professor at Columbia University.

Professor Elizabeth Midlarsky said ‎she was shocked by the vandalism of her office. ‎

‎"I stopped for a moment because I couldn’t believe what I was ‎seeing," she told local media.‎

The university said in a statement that it was "outraged and ‎horrified by this act of aggression and use of this vile anti-Semitic ‎symbol against a valued member of our community," and that it was ‎‎"working with police to discover the perpetrator of this hateful act."‎
