On Monday, reports showed that the Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) at Vanderbilt University was the victim of anti-Semitic vandalism. Swastikas were painted inside their fraternity house in an attempt to intimidate the Jewish presence on Vanderbilt’s campus.
This act of animosity is just one of the recent attacks meant to isolate the Jewish community; however, pro-Israel college students like members of Young Women for America of Liberty University stand in solidarity with AEPi and with Israel. YWA produced the video below in response to the attack.

“As Young Women for America, we oppose the growing trend of anti-Semitism on college campuses. We believe in the right of religious freedom for all Americans, regardless of their faith.”
“Corrie ten Boom was a woman who helped Jews during the Holocaust escape deportation and arrest. She followed her religious convictions and believed in the equality of all human beings.”
“Whether you’re Corrie ten Boom or a current college student, we urge you to stand with the Jewish community in a time when history is slowly starting to repeat itself.”
“AEPi, Young Women for America stands not only with you, but in support of you during this time of persecution.”
