It is Quite Sad That Anti-Semitism is on the Rise

It is very sad when anti-Semitism strikes close to home.  I grew up in Rego Park and until 1961 I was a student at P.S. 139 on 63rd Drive.  Earlier this week there was anti-Semitic graffiti found in the playground behind the school.  Thankfully, the vandal was found as reported in this Tweet by Chief Dermot O'Shea of the NYPD.

On Fri, 2-22-19, anti-Semitic graffiti was found throughout a Queens playground. The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force now have the suspect—a 12-year-old male—in custody. Great job @NYPDHateCrimes No matter the face of hate, the NYPD, partnered with the community, has ZERO tolerance.

What can be done to stop this?  Where does a 12-year-old kid learn to hate Jews?
